I am probably the most impatient person you will ever know. No, seriously, I am. It's a trait that I've been working on my whole life and N has it, too, unfortunately. I like instant gratification (except for online shopping) and once I have my mind set to do something, I do it.
This season of waiting has been very difficult for me.
As if our unknown future wasn't enough, I've also dealt with some health issues that have been kinda scary. Well, not kinda - actually had the potential to be very scary. Having bloodwork done to test for cancer cells is no laughing matter but thankfully, I'm just fine - praise God!
Almost daily, I text my hubs things like:
... and ...
So, I looked up Philippians 4:1-9 and the excerpt that speaks to my heart right now is this:
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (verses 4-7)
Speaking of peace, that's not a trait I possess either. At any given moment, even while dreaming, I have at least 538 things running through my mind and a mental to do list much like Sarah Jessica Parker's in the movie I Don't Know How She Does It. As you can imagine, the waiting causes me to think of 271 more things - analyzing and analyzing some more.
I'm slowly driving myself a little bit crazy.
So, today, I'm going to focus on the whole "do not be anxious about anything" part while hanging out with my girl, doing laundry, doing some art, and doing a little bit of online shopping. *wink*
