And I guess today’s SOAP is just a reminder to be patient with myself on that front, too.
Scripture: Acts 24:27
When two years had passed, Felix was succeeded by Porcius Festus, but because Felix wanted to grant favor to the Jews, he left Paul in prison.
TWO YEARS! Paul sat and waited for TWO YEARS and then some! In that time he shared his story and Jesus’ story.
I can be impatient at times. I want things to happen without waiting. I want to see change.
TWO YEARS really grabbed me.
If Paul can be patient sitting in prison, I can be more patient when it comes to my requests.
Change will happen in His time. And, to be honest, I can see it when I really stop and look.
I need to be patient… with others and also with myself… while still working toward the goals.
Lord, thank you for this reminder.
I will try harder to be more patient. I will remember those TWO YEARS. I will try to remember eternity.
