Be Patient

Thismorning I was plaiting Hannah's hair before she went to school. She was building with Lego while I worked on her hair. I was half way through an inside out French plait when Hannah decided she had had enough.
"Can you stop it now, Mummy?" she complained.
I thought, If I stop now, your hair will be a mess again.
Hannah couldn't see the beautiful plait I was making. She was impatient because she thought it was taking too long.
Are you like Hannah? Are there things in your life that make you say, 'I'm over it. I've had enough. This has gone on long enough?'
Do you ask God to 'stop it?' To put an end to your problems?
Maybe God is working something beautiful in your life through your trials. Maybe He is working the beauty of patience, perseverance, love, joy, peace, self control etc.Be patient and trust Him. Just let Him do what He is trying to do.

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 
Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. James 1:2-4
