Good. I’m praying for patience and comfort for you (us). It will take some time to figure out what works and what doesn’t. Have faith that God wants you to get better. He’s placed the tools in front of us and it’s up to us to use them. Hang in there. I love you!
My knee-jerk reaction to this sweet admission of prayer on my behalf was,
I know what God does when you pray for patience, hahahaha!! I’m kidding about being alarmed, but serious about the results of praying for patience. God certainly does give us gifts out of the blue, but it seems – in my case, anyway – that he uses requests for things patience, understanding, compassion, and humility as an exercise in santification. It usually results in me being put in situations where I can choose to continue the sanctification process and respond in a Christ-like manner, or I can be disobedient and try to deal with things “my way.” And we know that just doesn’t work. It might temporarily, but we are not growing as Christians when we make that choice.
And on that note, I am going to pray to be tempted by food. :)
