The push

I have a horrible tendency to push too hard to make things happen quickly. Instead of waiting on God to answer my prayers I get anxious feeling as though it’s not going to happen. When I have had the patience to wait for God, the outcome was outstanding and exceeded my every expectation. Pushing too hard to make things happen can also blow up in our faces and cause us to be unproductive. Patience and trust in our Heavenly Father is the key to answered prayers.

  1. Great words of advice! Its that balance between waiting for God, listening, moving forward, and /or running in a particular direction because you think its what God wants (when its really what we want). Its reading about and talking to God throughout the day that helps me the most.
