Love is... Patient (1 Corinthians 13:4).
1 Corinthinans 13, The Love Chapter, was an integral part of our wedding vows. We promised to live these attributes of love in every part of our married life together. Every once in awhile I come back to these verses that described Agape, the love our Father up above has for each of us.
This deployment is definitely teaching me about patience.
Time seems to be dragging. Phone calls get cut short because of a bad connection. Letters and packages take weeks to be delivered. Hubby doesn’t reply to emails as quickly as I’d like.
Letting God work in His timing.
Understanding distance and time restraints.
Taking one day at a time, and opening myself to what God might want to teach me today. It's a tough lesson, but I'm willing to learn.
For the next few weeks, I'll be sifting through 1 Corinthians 13, I hope you'll come along on the journey with me.
What might God be teaching you about patience today?
