There are times in life when it seems that things are just not going according to plan. For someone who likes following a schedule that can be a challenge. Being gracious when you feel let down is difficult but in truth it is the only response that is valid.
Understanding that other people face the same challenges as you do will go a long way to finding the strength you need to be able to take a deep breath and take things in your stride. Grace is always rewarded one way or another and chuck in a little patience and you will soon see the fruit of your efforts.
Paul faced many imprisonments and there were many times during these seasons that he did not receive any support from the church, yet despite this he learned to show grace to others and not get offended at their lack of support when it was difficult for them to assist him.
Learning to show grace is an important part of our spiritual growth so if you are feeling stretched in this area right now, ask the Holy Spirit to guide you and to give you wisdom to know how best to respond to a given situation.
