gratituesday : patience

thank you Lord, for teaching me patience.  patience with my family, friends, and enemies.  thanks for the patience you give me with strangers.  thank you for teaching me to be patient.  thank you for continuing to show me patience in things i love... for love is patient. (1.cor. 13: 4)
i want to show patience to this little girl inside of me.  i want to rest in His plan for her delivery.  i want to be able to wait out the time it takes for my body to fully prepare for her birth.  please lord, grant me the patience it'll take for that.  let me go into labor naturally... and let her come out naturally... the way you made me to have her. 
i am grateful i have a God that i can come to with this request.  he loves me.  he's patient with me every single day!  thank you for that too, God.  you ARE love!!!!! (1 john 4: 8)

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
