If there is one thing I’ve been tested for in this season of my life, it has definitely been patience…
There are many things that I have been opening my eyes to lately & for some reason they have been tugging at my heart. I have had an ache in my heart that has just been weighing me down, with little understanding..
Yesterday at work, it was a normal day… Yet I was extremely impatient. I was in my own little bubble and completely oblivious that my little problem, would soon be worked through… & I should still treat others with respect.
I sensed myself hurrying people with my body language, although I am very insulted when that happens to me.. Cutting people off a little quickly without realizing it…
I then answered the phone to someone calling my work… Waiting for a response on the other end, I hear a man struggling to form words. I can tell he is trying to get his point across… But its hard for him.. I soon begin to realize this man has turrets. As I hear him, my heart begins to soften & my whole body begins to relax.
All day I should have been patient & understanding, but it was this man who made me realize my attitude had been wrong & I calmly wait until he is done with his words, just listening and letting him be heard.
Regardless of what he wanted, or what point he needed to get across from me… With open ears & a tender heart.. I realized once again why were here.. To LOVE.
To be patient. To be kind. To be caring. To be true. To just love…
When we begin to realize everyday is about taking care of each other & nurturing not only your needs, but your neighbors.. Then we start seeing the bigger picture. Look outside your own little world today, who have you shown love to? Who have you encouraged? Or simply given someone attention to feel like they belong in a world telling them they don’t?
Think of a way to bless someone today & go through with it… With fierce love. ❤
