Talking Patience and the bible: How impatient are you maybe? Let's talk.

If you want life to go well, you need to be Patient. Unfortunately sometimes we can become impatient in this life.
I know how you feel. Hang in there friend. You know the saying about patience right? "Patience is a virtue." True saying!

Okay, this is a true story about me:
1. I am waiting for a better income from the state. God has promised me through His word the ability to budget my money better. I am willing to try even though I will have lower income because of money I make every two weeks at program.
2. The time I took matters into my own hands was when I defrauded my mother's trust fund twice. This resulted in me getting caught twice and the second time, having to sign a contract with my care provider. To be completely honest, it was not worth it at all and cost me a lot of grief and pain as I was preparing to heal from what I did.
3. Honestly, I react to my consequences from my actions by not blaming others but through going to God for help and forgiveness in true hopes that I will repent.
