I am telling you the truth. I will never, ever, ever learn. You see…I thought Brian was going to make a decision I didn’t agree with. AT ALL. Instead of praying about it and giving it to the Lord to take care of, I worried and fretted, bit my nails and ate junk, quit making his lunch and slept in, stopped blogging and read trashy books, giving baths and cleaning spit up.
So, what lesson does God keep trying to teach me? Wait on Him. Just wait. And patience, I’m sure. Remember this?
That is what I say to Kate 5,892 times a day. I hold up one finger and say, “wait on Mommy.” She then proceeds to do whatever without me, almost always getting hurt or making a mess because she didn’t wait. That is me…always trying to DO things on my own. Impatient. Frustrated. Wanting things to be my way.
Just wait, God says to me, daily. Wait on Him. His way is not my way, and that is fo’ sho’.
I think He also wants me to realize that this is life, you know. We should be learning something every single day. Whether it be spiritual or practical.
On that note, I have also learned to CHECK ALL POCKETS before washing. I just recently washed a red pen with a load of Brian’s work clothes. I am so glad I had this on hand:
So, a review:
- Wait on God.
- Pray about it. Don’t fret.
- Check pockets before washing.
