Thoughts and Reflections of a Beautiful Soul

Patience is bitter.......but it's fruit is sweet...



We should have patience with all things, but chiefly we should have patience with ourselves. We as a people lack patience. We look to God for immediate answers, quick responses and fast results to our trials and tribulations in our lives and some of us can't even fall on our knees to pray. Know that everything works in God's favor....God's time...and for His purpose. We block so many blessings with our selfish desires, sinful pleasures and our impatient needs to fulfill our empty souls, but yet we are still incomplete.


Patience is a byproduct of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is learned.....and that is a lesson that we risk to learn the hard way. God's patience is infinite! He is a faithful gardener ready to cut off the things in our lives that don't bear fruit. He knows what we lack, what we need and with whom we should keep in our lives. God is perfect in His wisdom, His ways and His timing. We need to reflect back on the moments of our lives where God's patience, grace and mercy had to intervene in the midst of a storm because we were disobedient.






The lack of patience shows where are main priorities lie....in ourselves


The lack of patience allows us not to think before we speak and regret words that we can't take back.


The lack of patience allows us to lose out on Golden opportunities that God had in store for us.


The lack of patience shows what we truly value...the need not to be dependent on God.


The lack of patience in love allows us to spend countless time with the one that God has not chosen for us.




Learn to be more sensitive to God's presence....be patient and understanding. Life is too short to be vengeful or malicious. Know that the testing of your Faith produces patience. Remember that God's patience is Infinite! God hasn't given up on you. He can still do great things for you, in you, and through you....believe me when I say...Beloved, whatever you are waiting for or believing for, God will not be late. Trust God at His Word...let Him reassure you of His all-sufficient power and love and let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

  1. Awesome and awe-inspiring. We ask for so much and yet never say thank you. The world gives us immediate everything, instant everything, so we still fall back to be conidtioned to where we used to be because it is comfortable and safe. We conform to comfort, we need to be comforted by He who comforts us! God! Beautifully written! This is an honest masterPEACE of thought.

    It was all that, I really liked how everything flowed, and the closing statement brought it all together. This gives you food for thought, it makes you think further into yourself and evaluate what you need to improve on. It will make you thirst for more, so that individual will go seek to find out further. Right here is it. This statement made me think about my imperfections and how true I need to be to myself regarding my own personal selfishness. Keep it up……you definitely have a God given talent and trust your ability to write words that make sense will reach out to many. The key is being true to you.
