James 1:4, let patience have its perfect work,

But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. NKJV
Well, I am already getting impatient. We helped Trevor and Erika move today which was really good, but we had planned to go to a children's hospital after lunch. The problem is that on our way home the streets were crazy with all the rain and it was decided that because of how difficult it is to drive our giant van in the rain and traffic we would need to cancel this first trip to the hospital.

At first it was really disappointing, but while writing my journal earlier today I realized that thanks to our plethora of free time today I had finally been able to finish unpacking and get everything organized without stress or rush as well as spend some time on Rossetta Stone to work on my Spanish and even get some cleaning done around the house.

I need to keep trusting God that He has a plan and purpose for our time, whether that means our doing something big and obvious or feeling unproductive and unhelpful (regardless of if it is actually true or not), and keep praying for His hand to be upon our work.

Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling,
And to present you faultless
Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
To God our Savior,
Who alone is wise,
Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,
Both now and forever.
