☀️ Patience

A Sunday Doxology

I humbly praise you,

the God who keeps sending the sun

to open another day

which in your eternal time zone

can span a thousand years

or hold them all contained,

while I fuss over short hours

and lists too long to tick away

and fret over prayer unanswered,

people unchanged,

dreams unrealized.

My understanding of slowness

exposes my impatience.

Yet you continue to ever,

always be forgiving,

gracious and compassionate,

slow to anger,

abounding in love,

rich in kindness, forbearance —


So patient.
