I think impatience is one of my besetting sins. I become frustrated so easily with the boys lately. Today I prayed for patience, was tested with spilled milk, spilled yogurt, loud kids and I failed. I became impatient. Thankfully, we serve a patient God.
But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
And so I will keep praying for patience and remembering verses like these:
My dear brothers, take note of this; Everyone should be quick to listen slow to speak and slow to become angry for man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.
