I've been praying recently for a more patient heart. I've always considered myself a pretty patient man, but with having a son brings great joy and great frustration at times.
I've said as long as I can remember that I believe that God shapes our character most through marriage and through being a parent. Now that I'm a parent, I can say from experience the latter is true as well.
Abba, continue to remind me of your deep love and patience with me, so that I might show Ryland the patience and love he needs to grow into a man who seeks after You... Let me be a true sacrifice for my family.
