Patience

Ramos is delayed in Mozambique dealing with police paperwork to de-register our truck – this means that he is 2 days later than I expected. I hate waiting and I hate being late.

How do you get to the stage were you are at peace with waiting? I get panicky when there are delays, but they are out of my hands so what does my stressing achieve other than tormenting myself? But how do you get to the stage were you can just it go? 

Colossians 3:12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

How do you clothe yourself in patience? It sounds like patience is not a gift bestowed upon us but a choice. Lord help me to put on patience today.
