1 Timothy 2:4, 2 Peter 3:8-13
2 Peter 3:8-9 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
These words remind me to be patient, as God is patient. I can never be “good” because only God is good. I can repent of my sins, and strive to be better. I can and should continually attempt to show God’s love to others, through my actions and at times my inaction. God is in control, and I am here for His purpose. If that purpose is cloudy, or seems slow or confusing, that is okay. If I am in right relationship with Jesus, I will stay “ontrakk”.
Holy God, guide me and lead me. I will try to listen and to look and to realize your desires for me. Thank you for your steadfast love. Amen
