We become frustrated in waiting for someone to change according to our expectations, especially in a relationship. In essence, and drastically, we try to change others.
God accepts us just the way we are, therefore, we are to accept one another the same way. We wouldn’t want someone trying to change us, therefore, let’s not try to change someone else.
Pray for others, as well as for yourself, for God to do his will. Don’t give up in your waiting, but wait for God to do the changing. You will see that God is not just changing the other person, but he’s also changing you.
Trust God. Don’t give up, just wait a little while longer.
Isaiah 40:29 (KJV) – He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
Psalm 123:2 (KJV) – behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until that he have mercy upon us.
