Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content:
Changes no matter what kind are inevitable in life. When your time is not your own dictated by the lives or others God has called you to reach is not mundane but changes rapidly every day.
Constant challenges to a normal daily routine, whatever that is has been part of life for me for a long time, prior to semi retiring. The passage I quoted was one thing that kept me and though simple it has been a blessing in disguise during these times of isolation and seperation.
Everyday was unique in and of itself and even to and from was unique on occasion. I have always looked at God as a man with a plan as in Jer 29:11
Do I get antsy sure I do but I recall the days, years running to and fro looking for the next fun thing, the next whatever to satisfy my fleshly lusts and at almost 66 i just thank Him that I am still here. His grace is sufficient.
To encourage someone just let me say God is a God who is long suffering towards us in that none shall perish. Gods character is uber patient with us and He expects us to wait (be patient) with Him. A quality we are not fond of and told not to pray for. But this verse precedes a very important much needed quality in our journey through life.
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.
James 1:2-4 NKJV
Did I ask for patience, not really, did I have it I gained it by all the various trials, diseases, sicknesses, and tragedies that happened, in my life.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
James 1:5-6, 8 NKJV
Patience truly is a great virtue. Imagine the blessings that await us on the other side of this great trial, testing of our faith.
Love and patience to each and all as we are held by our true anchor in this worldwide storm.
