"Be still and know that I am God." -Psalm 46:10
In life it is SO easy to underestimate the power of God. As humans we always try to take matters into our own hands and forget that we don't always have to, we always want to do things at our OWN pace and OWN way that we forget that God has a way; God has a plan that is far better than we could ever imagine. Faith and patience is one of the hardest concepts to grasps as humans.
I have learned all this the hard way. God had challenged me with this ongoing issue that we experience day to day. I know I need to be still and slow to anger. I need to think before I act, but it can be the hardest thing sometimes, especially when you want to fix things, in my case... right away. I want to be able to respond the way I want and not the way God wants.
In the end, I made things worse by trying to handle the situation I was being faced with my way and not God's way. I realized that very quickly and I regretted the words and actions that I expressed. I pray everyday that God will give me the patience and the strength to be still and have that faith to know that God has everything taken care of.
