Patience and Daisy

Couldn’t help but starting off this post with a picture of our dog, Daisy, especially since thisย one’s mostly about her. ๐Ÿ™‚


Isn’t she cute?! Yeah, that’s an empty red pepper container that she’s playing with. ๐Ÿ˜€ Anyway, I couldn’t resist a chance to talk about Daisy.

Daisy has a real problem with patience. Especially when it comes to her food. My parents are trying to teach her to hold a treat on the end of her nose and wait until they say “okay” before she eats it. Let’s just say that she’s not doing so well with the waiting part. ๐Ÿ˜‰

When we first got her, we had a really hard time keeping her from diving for her food. Now she’s a lot better, thanks to my dad’s hard work, but it’s still funny to see her licking lips and straining to keep from going for her food.

Aren’t we like that sometimes? Sometimes it’s really hard to wait for things. We like to do things in our time, people time, not God time. Although I have to admit, a lot of the time, God time is a LOT slower than I’d like.

But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not grow weary, They shall walk and not faint.

-Isaiah 40:31

I love this verse. “Mount up with wings like eagles.” Sure makes me want to be patient!

Challenge: Ask God to help you be more patient with others this week. I’m sure it would be good if you started with your parents and siblings…
