today, i was taught this very important value in life.
a line from the movie evan almighty comes to mind in this situation -- if you ask god for patience, he will not give it to you straight. instead, he will provide you with the opportunity to practice patience. and only from there would you have gotten what you asked for.
as i am placed in that same situation, i want to thank god for the opportunity he presented to me and my family. we were in much need of that thing and he knew we needed that approval immediately. yet, he knew we also need to learn to be patient.
and patience was shown to us today.
thank you lord. this means a lot to us.
