8 Things I NEVER Have to wait for :)

I found that there are some things you never have to wait for.  As a matter of fact you should be disgustingly impatient when it comes to this.  Here's my list.

one is thankfulness.
You never have to wait to give thanks to God, give thanks to people around you.  Give thanks and you never have to wait to do that.

Be kind 
You never have to wait to show kindness to others.

Show love
You never have to wait to show love to someone

Teach patience
I know it sounds ironic, but patience builds character, and I don't mean showing "patience" when you need to act on something.  I'm saying when it is easier to act, but the pay off for everyone is greater if you wait. You need to show patience NOW.

Be at peace
You never have to wait to be at peace.  I want to add that all of these things, these virtues are all incredibly priceless and they are the things that give us all of those things that we think we want in life.  Be at peace and you never have to wait to do that.

Be gentle
This is one that I need to work on as well, just as a guy we think that we need to be more stern, but gentleness has more power.  We never have to wait to do this, but ironically, when we wait we are gaining this ability.

Be humble
Being humble is something we never have to wait for, but again, ironically, this is the reward of waiting.  Like what many successful people say:  it's the the things you get from developing the right habits, but it's the habits themselves that are your reward.

You, let me give you permission, you never have to wait to smile at God, smile at the day, smile at the day all day.  Smile, because God is good to you.

BONUS: Integrity
Never wait to have integrity.  Always hold to the integrity you've been given.  God  smiles at you and He has awesome plans for you (Jeremiah 2:19). Be humble, but NEVER trade your integrity for anything.

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
