It takes time to come to know God. In Jesus, we have a patient friend and companion. What may not be clear immediately comes into focus over time. Am I patient enough with myself to allow God to reveal Jesus slowly? Can I accept the challenge to not be in control and to allow God to unfold the plan for me at a pace set by Him.

Dear Jesus, I want to know all of you right now, yet I cannot do so. It is God’s plan, not mine. My mind and heart can only absorb so much today. Help me to be patient.
