“Faith is no substitute for planning. There may be sometimes when we can’t plan, but we should never reject planning.” God is not a genie and we shouldn’t expect him to bless our prayers if we are not willing to put forth the effort. Don’t just talk — take action. Don’t just pray — prepare. I very much needed this today! Nehemiah 2:5-11

“The only day to live for God is today.” You’ll definitely want to read this last blog post, not because I wrote it, but because it’s mainly points and thoughts given by my dads New Years bible lesson. So many good reminders that I know I needed! 😄

“Impatience isn’t just a minor inconvenience or a personality flaw; it’s a response to a self-obsessed mind that is more consumed with what you want than what God wants.”


I’m not sure if that hurt you as much as it hurt me — but, man, that’s convicting. I’ll admit, impatience is one of my biggest flaws. It’s something that I am constantly failing at and needing to improve.

I often feel like it’s the whole “one step forward, two steps back” ordeal. Anyone else with me on this? I know I can’t hear you, but maybe you nodded your head in agreement, or maybe you’re a better person than I and don’t get extremely annoyed at traffic, taking your dog for a walk, or the fact that no one seems to have common sense anymore.

Ya, I really gave myself away there, didn’t I?

One of the best things to do when feeling impatient is to think of a Bible verse. I’m not saying that saying it in your head once will make all your impatience go away. For me, it takes some time and patience (oh, the irony) in order for a patient spirit to settle in.

I’m especially working on my patience while I drive… I can’t be the only one here, right?!

Anyway, I’ve included some verse references I encourage you to look up. You’ll be glad you did!

Psalm 27:14

James 1:2-4

Romans 5:3-4

Luke 21:19
