God is patient

LENT

At the time I have decided, my words will come true. You can trust what I say about the future. It may take a long time, but keep on waiting— it will happen! ~ Habakkuk 2:3 (CEV)

The Lord isn’t slow about keeping his promises, as some people think he is. In fact, God is patient, because he wants everyone to turn from sin and no one to be lost. ~ 2 Peter 3:9 (CEV)

KEY IDEA:
God is patiently waiting for us to get with his program.
PRAYER:
Lord of day and night, your timing is perfect. I am so often impatient waiting for you. You have proven yourself faithful time and again. Forgive my self-serving ways. Let me learn from your divine patience. May my desires be shaped by your will, that all should come to repent. Amen. (Daily Texts, Mount Carmel Ministries edition)
