Patient Trust

Standard

Tonight,  I feel…impatient.  Impatient for things to start – things I’ve been waiting for for a long, long time.  So, to help myself remember that waiting is sometimes part of life like it or not, I looked up this prayer, and thought I’d share, to remind you, too…just in case anyone out there in blogland is feeling the same way…

 Patient Trust by Teilhard de Chardin 

Above all, trust in the slow work of God. We are quite naturally impatient in everything to reach the end without delay. 

We would like to skip the intermediate stages. We are impatient of being on the way to something unknown, something new. 

And yet, it is the law of all progress that it is made by passing through some stages of instability – and that it may take a very long time. 

And so I think it is with you; your ideas mature gradually – let them grow, let them shape themselves, without undue haste. 

Don’t try to force them on, as though you could be today what time, (that is to say, grace and circumstances acting on your own good will) will make of you tomorrow. 

Only God could say what this new spirit gradually forming in you will be. 

Give our Lord the benefit of believing that his hand is leading you, and accept the anxiety of feeling yourself in suspense and incomplete.

Food for thought, yes?
