~No time for patience?~

Why is it that we all have such a hard time in the patience department? If only we could realize that if we could learn to wait just a few minutes longer we would be able to enjoy a much fuller life! When we decide to rush things in our lives we aren't able to understand or appreciate what we have by "the waiting process"
If we can train ourselves to hold on perhaps when something good shows up in our lives we'll be able to identify it instead of overlooking the good things! There is a time for everything under Heaven..even a time to wait so why do we wait so long to train ourselves how to wait for the good things? I've heard it said that "the greatest things in life are the things you wait for the longest" if that's true then we have been living life all wrong and we have been settling for less instead of taking hold of the best possible things to benefit our lives! When it feels like your head is spinning, when it feels like nothing is going right, when you feel like you just can't pass the test in your life..whatever kind of test that might be..God is going to be the one that can help you in that difficult place in your life by teaching you patience!
Let me ask you a question.. Aren't you tired of being impatient? Aren't you tired of becoming easily frustrated because you just don't have the patience? God can help you with that..God can give you the ability to wait on the things in your life that you're struggling to wait on! Pray to God and ask him to help you in this area! Ask him to put you in a place where you'll be able to learn patience! You can do this with God's help!
Ecclesiastes 7:7-9
"7 Surely oppression drives the wise into madness,
and a bribe corrupts the heart.
8 Better is the end of a thing than its beginning,
and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
9 Be not quick in your spirit to become angry,
for anger lodges in the heart of fools."
