BAM! You got me, Mr. Maxwell.

I couldn't sleep last night because I had so much on my mind. I was full of doubt, impatience, fear, sadness...

And then God wanted to prove himself.  He made today an incredibly productive day, full of little miracles and upped spirits.

And to end the day, I stumbled upon this little gem. It's safe to say I have learned my lesson.

"Patience is tied very closely to faith in our Heavenly Father. Actually, when we are unduly impatient, we are suggesting that we know what is best—better than does God. Or, at least, we are asserting that our timetable is better than His. We can grow in faith only if we are willing to wait patiently for God's purposes and patterns to unfold in our lives, on His timetable."
