“Fòk ou gen pasyans pou ou leve solèy.”
Translation: “You must have patience to raise the sun.”
The one think I love about the Christian life is that once you engage with God on a personal level, He begins to bring big dreams and ideas about what your life can be and what He wants to accomplish through you. However, too many of us rush out ahead of God to get things done and often get ourselves in a bind. Remember, it is God who set the speed at which the sun rises in the sky, and it is God who will set the pace at which He will work in you to bring about your own sanctification and fulfill the dreams He has given you. Don’t stop working toward the goal, but make sure you are waiting on the Lord as well.
