Seriously, it nothing, but a trick of the enemy to get one self, all worked up when things seem not going the way or not getting what we want instantly,Bro.Adetunji said it best..
We get impatient instead waiting on God, waitin' in God.It a lack of patience and we could miss out on the real blessing God has in store for you.Bro.Adetunji said "it's ungodly!"

Geraldine: Impatience WHEN? There are cases where one has good reason to be impatient, though not angry.

If I tell you I will meet you at 6 and am not there by 7, you have every reason for being impatient

Unless you mean impatient with God, where impatience does mean we lack trust!

Elena thank you for asking,Mama's doing good. She likes the other patients and four of them sit together at the dinner table,one is a woman she has known probably over 40 years. Her care giver said they all try to see about her needs,if she doesn't have something at the table different ones start asking for it. He room mate will put her light on for help if Mama's doesn't get a response. Please keep praying she is approved for medicaid there is a fill in person for the regular one who is sick and she tried her best to trump up reasons for mama not to get Medicaid and the lady doing the paper work showed her every time she was wrong. Please pray I can find some money to pay the bills,right now I don't have enough. God Bless Darlene 1

Kathr4 - Yes, totally awesome how God provides at just the right moment!
---Geraldine on 8/14/14

Again, thank you!

---Geraldine on 8/14/14

Geraldine, isn't it awesome how the Word of God can instantly transform our outlook at any given moment.

I remember the day I read this next verse just at that perfect moment I needed it:

2 Thessalonians 1:4-5
4 So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure:

5 Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer:

God Bless!

Impatience is learned and Patience is taught. Children watch what adults do,how they respond to life situations and if the adults have poor life skills and always wanting things done yesterday instead of having sense enough to know all things take time,children learn to copy them. Adults teach Patience in many ways,one that comes to mind is when children are playing with others and there is one particular toy they all like then we teach them "You have to wait your turn" then we get them another toy to play with until their turn making the wait enjoyable. This is repeated in many ways and thereby teaching and giving life skills to children which apply to their future living. God Bless

Thank you SO MUCH for sharing James 5:11 "Behold we count them happy which endure". My entire outlook shifted to joy when I read that! I am expecting every "problem" will have a new and better entity now. Again, thank you!
---Geraldine on 8/14/14

James 5:11Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job,------

One might even say it is "patient endurance" while being tested. Or to "hold up under' as we go through these trials and testing's...for what purpose????

Colossians 1:10-so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, 12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.

Brothers & Sisters, could you imagine
If Jesus had been like some of us, so impatient? We would never had the despensation of grace...we would have been in actuality lost, no chance
to renew our hearts, spirit, relationship with Christ...we would be
Love of Jesus!

Does impatience show we do not have trust?
---Geraldine on 8/12/14

Patience is produced in our lives by testing. A lack of patience or impatience shows that we have a lack of desire to grow in godliness. We resist the testing of God and therefore, do not have patience.

James 1:2-4 " My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing"
---Mark_Eaton on 8/14/14

I have to admit I don't "wait" very well.
My motto has always been "It's better to be a half hour early than five minutes late"
Waiting for things and people gives me a pain !
God's time has very little to do with our clock !
---1stcliff on 8/13/14

'Impatience' is a form of COMPLAINING.

When we "pray", we are making a habit of giving God a list of OUR wants/desires ("I shall not WANT"). Our Father knows what we NEED before we ask (what HE has decided what we should have). We should let what He gives us graciously to be sufficient for us (that's what Paul did).

While praying, we also are in the habit of REMINDING GOD that we had already asked Him to heal the other person (we are complaining that He is not doing so fast enough and that HIS decisions aren't SATISFACTORY)....maybe He has even decided NOT TO because they chose DARKNESS.

We use God as a TALISMAN (spiritual tool). God is not to be used like a magic wand or a Power Rangers amulet.

In one way, i feel impatience is a type of temptation. It urges us not to wait for God's plan which is sometimes slow to unfold.
Impatience lures us to take less than what God reserved for us & suffer the consequences.
Impatience is ungodly.
---Adetunji on 8/13/14

Not necessarily.

Remember, if ask God for patience, He will give you plenty of opportunities to practice it.

The only way you can acquire patience is to be thrust into situations where your first instinct is to react impatiently.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
