Be Patient, My Friend - Galatians 6:9

 

So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

I read all sorts of devotionals. I guess I like the short stories that apply a Bible verse to my life. So, I really appreciated a book of devotions that a dear friend gave me after sweet Nicky, my 11 year old Maltese, went to the rainbow bridge. 

He was the sweetest little clown, always making me laugh. His nickname was Thumper because his tail would start wagging when he knew I was coming close to him. I was devastated when congestive heart failure took him too soon. My friend always knows exactly the right thing to do to show she cares and so it was a pleasant surprise when she gave me the book 52 Devotions for Dog Moms. It is full of dog stories that a dog mom understands.


One of the devotions used Galatians 6:9 to talk about patience. The story was about how a dog patiently waited by the door whenever the author left and how God does the same, patiently waiting for us to turn to Him.

I always thought of this passage as related to perseverance, so this was a new perspective for me. I like it, though. I like the idea of God being patient with us.
