Patience

Patience is a virtue. St. Augustine of Hippo

As an Augustinian, this recently has been a reminder to me. I have never really been patient. I think I’ve got ADHD. I am not patient, I lose my temper a hundred times a day, I tend to let my emotions take control of me, I am illogical most of the time. I am pessimistic and I know how difficult it is to remain smiling and positive among all this time I waste in waiting.

Now I’m in a waiting game with higher stakes. I have never lost more tears than the tears I have shed for this waiting game. I have never lost faith more times than this. Even when I cried over my writing results and the times I took the IELTS. I have not felt as low as this. This waiting game has me at my wit’s end and I am running low on the patience thread… But I know, this wait will be worth it. I have been seeking God more because of this. I have visited Don Bosco and Sto. Nino de Cebu more often. I have visited the hospital chapel more often now than I have ever done in the past.

I pray that I will have a little more patience. I pray that I will remember that this wait is worth it. I pray that I will not waver in my faith and that I will not lose hope. I pray to have a positive outlook on this trial. I pray for patience.
