Psalm 86:15 (TPT) But Lord, your nurturing love is tender and gentle. You are slow to get angry yet so swift to show your faithful love. You are full of abounding grace and truth.
Beloved, I’m not impatient with you. Nor am I frustrated when you’re slow to learn. I know when your heart is set on Me. So even in the moments you fall short, I see your imperfect progress for what it is: progress.
Resist the urge to become frustrated with yourself when you’re slower to change and grow than you’d like. For the energy is wasted, and much better spent helping you focus on continued progress – regardless of how slow you may find it.
I AM patient. I support you. I believe in you. I AM with you. I’m guiding you. Reflect the same grace to yourself that I do. And remember, I AM all you need.
Psalm 86:13-17 (TPT) You love me so much and you placed your greatness upon me. You rescued me from the deepest place of darkness, and you have delivered me from a certain death. God, look at how these arrogant ones have defied me. Like a vicious band of violent men they have tried to kill me. They wouldn’t worry for a moment that they were sinning against you! But Lord, your nurturing love is tender and gentle. You are slow to get angry yet so swift to show your faithful love. You are full of abounding grace and truth. Bring me to your grace-fountain so that your strength becomes mine. Be my hero and come rescue your servant once again! Send me a miraculous sign to show me how much you love me, so that those who hate me will see it and be ashamed. Don’t they know that you, Lord, are my comforter, the one who comes to help me?
