Faithful Fridays

As most of you know Frank and I have been going through a bit of a trial of late. We have both been impatient. We sit and fret and begin to wonder will this ever end. Our impatience gets us nowhere. We need to take each moment as it comes. It does no good to worry. We have control over only so much. The rest is up to the doctor and God. A burden is lifted when you just put things into God's hands and have patience.

I was reading in the bible (New King James Version) of what James in his epistle to the twelve tribes had to say about patience. He writes:

1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into various trials;

1:3 Knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.

1:4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

And then he talks of how we can ask God for wisdom.... we have only to ask in faith, with no doubt. Do you ever ask God for Wisdom? I haven't in a long time.

1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally, and without reproach, and it will be given him.

1:6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting. For he that doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.



  1. This is a nice post Zaroga...and so true. I really needed to read this today as sometimes I can be too impatient about things. Thanks!

    I enjoyed your name post also and the dogwood in the header. Wow!

  5. Zaroga, what is wrong? I guess that somewhere I have missed much going on here and also NOT going on here if you know what I mean..Mike is still not working like last year yet and hopefully it will be picking up soon.sooner than later.
    Take care and just keep your chin up like we are trying to do...keep in the Bible..

  6. These are verses we need to be reminded of. Thanks, Zaroga for posting this.

    Blessings and Hugs,

  7. Zaroga, you are so quoting my verses! Last Dec I came across the 'joy' part, and received an ornament that spells 'joy', ALL my Christmas cards had 'joy' on them, and now I'm bombarded with the word 'ENjoy':)

    God bless you (and Frank) in your journey of JOY:)
