Let’s learn how to “feed our souls” from each other. The people you surround yourself with should inspire you, motivate you, and affirm you. This is Victoria: a human, a dancer, a friend. And she is an inspiration to me.
I asked Victoria what she was learning. And she said, “patience.” Here are her thoughts in her own words:
“Be completely humble & gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” ~Ephesians 4:2
For some reason I have no problem being patient with other souls in my life. The Lord has been showing me how important it is to be patient with myself. I am in a process of healing right now, and I keep being reminded…healing takes time. I’m not going to wake up tomorrow and be a different person. I have to be patient with myself. Patient enough to listen to the inner voice that God has given me. Patient enough to hear what the Lord is telling me, as opposed to what I want to hear. Patient enough to pick myself up when I am falling down. Patient enough to see all of the beautiful things that God has planted in my life. Patient enough to thank Him for the amazing and ugly moments. Every time I get upset with myself lately, I see PATIENCE written in bold capital letters. Then, I am grateful.
Patience is a virtue. What Victoria said in the last post really resonates with me. “Patient enough to thank Him for the amazing and ugly moment.” I love that kind of gratitude. And so, how can you seek patience today? If you’re like me, it doesn’t come easy. But what if you focus on one thing throughout your day? Start there. And I hope this small victory can be a huge celebration for your very, precious life.
