I get so frustrated;
I get so mad;
I get so impatient;
I get so task orientated;
I forget that repetition helps learning;
I forget that consistency guides;
I forget that these children are only ours whilst on earth, a gift from God;
I forget to turn to the Lord during all of the above…
help me be patient;
help me to forget the task and remember the child;
help me to be generously repetitious with words and actions;
help me to be consistent;
help me to always remember the gift of our children – given by You;
help me to always remember to turn to You and seek Your face daily.
help me always to love above everything else.
Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

I am very thankful for patience and for gentle reminders that God provides when frustration is trying to get the better of you. I am a teacher and hearing your words are perfect for me to remember as I work with children everyday. Thanksgiving blessings!

Well said. I have the same “sometimes” problems and need to “always” ask for the Lord’s help. Visiting from the Weekend Brew.
