I find myself being very impatient sometimes. Well, a lot of the time. We live in a world of instant gratification. We can pause our TVs and record shows so we don't have to wait 3 minutes for the commercials to end. We can pick up our cell phones and call, text, e-mail, facebook, etc. When I don't get an e-mail back from someone in matter of minutes I start either worrying something is wrong with them, or getting frustrated that they are taking so long to get back with me. I expect it NOW. I reached over to my radio this morning to rewind it because there was something I wanted to hear again. Seriously? How selfish am I that I think I should get everything I want when I want it?
We were created by a God with great patience. He has to be. Have you met the human race?? We're nuts! If he wasn't the most insanely patient being, he would have zapped us all LONG ago. ZAP!
All that to say, I'm thankful I was created in the image of HIM. Who is way more patient than me.
However, I bet he got a good laugh out of me trying to rewind my radio. Give it a few years, we'll be there.
