Sleepless in Sherman

I was going to blog earlier, much earlier, but I was just too tired. Yet, sleep, apparently isn't what I'm supposed to be doing now.

It's alright because, heck, remember my old favorite characteristic of a teacher of God? Well, it's patience. Here's that section again. It never gets old, I tell you!

VIII. Patience

Those who are certain of the outcome can afford to wait, and wait without anxiety. Patience is natural to the teacher of God. All he sees is certain outcome, at a time perhaps unknown to him as yet, but not in doubt. The time will be as right as is the answer. And this is true for everything that happens now or in the future. The past as well held no mistakes; nothing that did not serve to benefit the world as well as him to whom it seemed to happen. Perhaps it was not understood at the time. Even so, the teacher of God is willing to reconsider all his past decisions, if they are causing pain to anyone. Patience is natural to those who trust. Sure of the ultimate interpretation of all things in time, no outcome already seen or yet to come can cause them fear.

Amen and good night!


  1. Now you must learn that only infinite patience produces immediate effects. T-5:VI:12:1

    There is a way in which escape is possible. It can be learned and taught, but it requires patience and abundant willingness. M-17:8:3-4

    Patience, a song by Guns N' Roses. : )

  2. Lovely, - thank you, MCS.

  3. Great quotes, Mikey! You are such a lovely addition. And, you are so welcome Anil. Thank you for reading and talking! I love it when people talk. It makes me feel special! I'm just kidding, probably!

  4. Hi MCS-
    If I think too much about it, I probably wouldn't write anything. But my reaction to your blogs are so spontaneous, that the words slip through onto the keyboard before my thinking brain can stop them :)
    Take care, and GiddyUpMike - thanks for putting up the link to MCS's blog !! (am waiting for your book). And Gary's 3rd as well.

  5. Hi Anil, That's lovely what you said about your comments slipping through. I'm glad they do! I'm waiting for these 2 books right along with you! In fact, in spite of my favorite characteristic of a teacher of God, I can hardly wait!
