Power from Awareness

Day 23 - Today I will be still so that I can be aware of your presence with me.

Impatience reared its ugly head again today.  But this time it was different.  I remembered yesterday and I took a moment to just stop and think.  Then I asked for the patience that was readily available for me.  Patience is a fruit of the Spirit.  And I have the Spirit - He is always, always with me.  So if I have the Spirit, I have patience.  The day went much easier after that realization.  Most of the time I'm just too busy to take a moment and realize that God is right here with me.  He is with me in the morning while I'm doing the dishes or dusting the furniture. He is with me when I have four screaming babies or 6 crying toddlers (or both!).  He is with me while I'm making dinner and waiting for Justin to get home.  He is with me...I just have to take the time to be aware...

Short and sweet.  :)
