This article began by my reading a guest article on Tricia Goyer’s website. (Stay tuned for a link to that article.)
There was a line in the article that said, “It’s kinda like praying for patience. Never do that either.”
My hackles went up on that one, to be completely honest. Who was this woman to tell me what my faith journey should look like? How could she possibly know what spiritual lesson I need to learn? And why do people keep telling me not to ask for patience?
(The rest of the article was amazing. Amy Matayo had some great points, and I appreciated her insight on faith being hard sometimes. So true!)
Why should I not ask for patience if that’s what I truly need to learn?
