Are You Running On Fumes?

When the fuel light goes off in the car, I know that I need to make my way to the closest fuel station, because I only have about fifty kilometers left. Well, that is if I am driving with my air conditioner off.

Earlier this week, I hadn’t slept well due to Miss K going through a serious sleep regression coupled with teething. When we woke up, she was cranky and did not want her feet to touch the floor, she wanted to be carried everywhere. She refused to have her breakfast. When she was not being carried, she was giving my shadow a run for it’s money, trying keeping up with me. At one point, I just wanted some quiet to use the bathroom. When I realized that I was going to have an audience, I prayed and asked God to help me because my patience was running low.

THEN, the Holy Spirit promptly reminded me ‘ Love is patient before it kind. It is patient before it is other things.’

I felt so reprimanded, in love.

I was reminded that it is crucial for me to be patient. If I feel low on patience {love} I should run to the nearest fuel station for a refill. Read: I should hide away for a few minutes and spend time with God. I know how cranky and mean I can be when I am impatient and honestly, no one deserves to be on the receiving end of that.

Are you feeling low on patience?

Are you irritable, mean and cranky.

Are you driving on E?

Perhaps it is time you too got a boost. All these things that are keeping you busy and draining you can wait a few minutes. Sneak away for a few minutes, read your bible, pray and worship. Let God fill your cup, then you will have more to pour into the lives of those around you. Afterwards you will feel refreshed, rejuvenated and wait for it, patient (:

For mamas with toddlers, the struggle is real but so is HIS grace, peace, love and mercy.When you feel your patience is running low, report to God’s throne with immediate effect. There you will receive mercy and find grace to help you in your time of need, Hebrews 4:16.

This song just played as I wrote this post. It reminded me how close God is to us. If we would only run to Him, He will answer.

God bless you.
