2 Peter 3:8-9

2 Peter 3:8-9 (New International Version)
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

My concept of time is not God’s time- I am impatient for results of prayer, but God is patient and times results perfectly so that I can learn and yearn for His guidance

God is so patient with me. I must learn to be patient with him as he answers my prayers in HIS way and HIS time, not mine.

God is patient with me. I must be patient with God. His timing is perfect.
