Day 22 - Patience

There’s always someone or something that tries our patience every single day.  It could be traffic or a classmate or a boss or a teacher or a co-worker or perhaps even a family member.  Perhaps today is as good a day as any to offer this up to the Lord and to pray to the Holy Spirit for the fruit of patience.  We say “let go and let God!” all the time, but do we really mean it?  We may try to change the people around us all we want, but in reality the only person we can change is ourselves.  As we reach the halfway point of Lent, maybe it’s time for us to really “let go” and let God be God.
