Prayerful Patience

Psalm 5:3-4
To you I pray, O Lord; at dawn you will hear my cry; at dawn I will plead before you and wait.

I know what I want…but what does God want? What if God wants something different than what my ego wants? Am I able to distinguish between what my ego wants and what my deepest, truest self really needs? One thing for sure…what God wants will be just what my true self needs to flourish and experience God’s love in an amazing way! Could the circumstances in our lives be ways through which God might be asking us to reconsider what we think we want so that something even more amazing could happen? Set aside some quiet time with God and pray, “Thy will be done…not mine.” Make your plea to God…and then wait and listen. Our Loving Creator wants what’s best for us. Trust the process.
