Prayer of Teilhard de Chardin

Picture taken of quote from the book, Prayers For Your Future Husband by Robin Jones Gunn and Tricia Goyer

Above all, trust in the slow work of God.We are quite naturally impatient in everything to reach the end without delay.We should like to skip the intermediate stages.We are impatient of being on the way to something unknown, something new.

And yet it is the law of all progressthat it is made by passing through some stages of instability—and that it may take a very long time.

And so I think it is with you;your ideas mature gradually—let them grow,let them shape themselves, without undue haste.Don’t try to force them on,as though you could be today what time(that is to say, grace and circumstances acting on your own good will) will make of you tomorrow.

Only God could say what this new spiritgradually forming within you will be.Give Our Lord the benefit of believingthat his hand is leading you,and accept the anxiety of feeling yourselfin suspense and incomplete.

—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, SJ, excerpted from Hearts on Fire

Every great dream begins with a dreamer… Harriet Tubman

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

Harriet Tubman

“A waiting person is a patient person.”

A waiting person is a patient person. The word patience means the willingness to stay where we are and live the situation out to the full in the belief that something hidden there will manifest itself to us.

Henri J. M. Nouwen

“A waiting person is a patient person” This quote was in my memories & I really needed this reminder today! With all the chaos and craziness that it going on in the world, I’m still believing and trusting God’s timing that He will still fulfill his promises in my life!! 🙌

Perseverance

My one little word for this year is perseverance and with the current outbreak of the corona virus I’m understanding why I was given this word this year. It’s going to take a lot of faith, patience, grace, and wisdom to help us get through this. But my faith in God has never failed me yet and I know it is what will get me through.
