God's been impressing upon my heart the importance of patience. Not just with my kids, but being patient vs. being impulsive.
There are times I get an idea or a thought, often noble and some sort of God honoring pursuit, and I run with it, creating dust in my path. Leaving no time for prayer and contemplation.
But the Lord is showing me to be a bit more prayerful and less impulsive. Wait and pray, seek Him before I make quick decisions, and make sure I am indeed doing what He's called me to do.
Learning self-control, learning to walk in line with the Spirit...yup, it's all apart of the process!
