What is Frankly Friday?
Let’s define Frankly shall we…
Happy HAPPY Friday!
I feel like every single day was Friday this week.
. . .
I’ve always struggled, and it has caused me great grief over the years.
I find that my lack of patience causes me to miss out on some of the most beautiful moments.
I struggle with road rage.
Oh yes, the horn honking, yelling in my car, grinding my teeth, and tossing out stank eyes left and right kind of road rage. I get IMPATIENT when someone cuts me off, or is driving too slow, or isn’t driving the way i think they should. Hmm…and yet there is so many things in this world that are way worse than just someone driving too slow.
I find that i can sometimes be impatient within a conversation.
I want so badly to offer my advice, or to hug them, or to _______ that i forget to fully listen to what they are pouring out to me. (i must admit, i’ve gotten a lot better with this.)
I’m impatient, maybe even sometimes lacking in trust, of God’s timeline.
Mostly because i think i know what is best for myself.
How incredibly foolish.
How incredibly foolish & lacking in patience.

I might do this later after work…just so I'm clear, do we take the "Frankly Friday" button from your page and link to you, then submit our own link in your form?
(I'm new to some of the current blogland things…I was mostly using online journals for the past four or five years.)
I lack any sense of patience when I have PMS haha… really though… it's bad. And I mostly take it out on my kids.
Other times though I'm not so bad. I hate PMS. 🙂
I am terrible when it comes to being patient. Patience truly is a virtue and it's one I've worked on this year. As a control freak, it's a tough one! I, too, need to put more faith in to Him; his plan will unfold and until then we should be patient.
SO much easier said than done. 🙂
preach it sister. i'm so impatient all the time. i really really struggle with having to wait. whether it's sitting in line at the grocery store, or waiting to hear back from an important email…either way, i definitely need to take a step back and breathe.
I turn in to a different woman when I am driving. It's scary! But patience isn't my strength either, so we will have to work on it together 🙂
Love what you said this week! Especially the ending, "This is what i desire. To have complete faith in God's timing.To be patient enough to wait on Him, not expect Him to wait on me."
So true….I NEVER want to wait on God even though that's best. Yet, I OFTEN want to take my time before I will follow where I already know He's leading. How foolish I am.
And then the last sentence, ""Yet, in order to live a life that is full of joy…i have to implement patience." You are so RIGHT.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
it is hard to be patient sometimes isn't it and wait on the Lord but His timing and His plans are always perfect and always worth waiting for!
Thanks so much for posting about this, I struggle so much with patience and God's timing. I have the desire to get married someday and it is soo hard to wait for someone to pursue me. Sometimes I can get angry with God for not providing. It's hard for me to believe the truth that He has me right where I am for a reason and this IS his best for me!
