Patient through it all

This post is part of a blog series on bible verses that give us inspiration and comfort.  Thank you for visiting!

A bible verse that inspires me:

2 Peter 3:9

What I love about this verse:

We are impatient. We are preoccupied. We are selfish. And yet, all of the time, God is patiently waiting for us.

This verse connects to current, daily life by:

We live in a fast-paced, fast-food, fast-answer world. We live in a culture that ignores patience and supports selfishness. We combat the quick-paced expectations of others every day in our work and our families. Yet, God is patient. He is waiting for us because He loves us and does not want us to perish. He wants us to live; to live with Him! It doesn’t matter how quickly we get tasks done, how quickly we can run through our day. In all of our time, fast or slow, God still wants us to be with Him.
