Sometimes I hesitate to pray for patience because I will likely begin to notice every annoying person or event that crops up in my life. I will find plenty of opportunities to be patient!
Yet I do want to practice drawing from the deep reserve of peace that dwells in my soul. I know I have the capacity to let events unfold in perfect order without pushing them along or correcting what I perceive to be errors. I can let other people be fully who they are. By focusing on my divine identity, I keep my temper in check and affirm the good in any situation. Aligned with the peace of God, I patiently await my greater understanding.
Give me understanding, that I may keep your law and observe it with my whole heart.—Psalm 119:34
