Patience is foreign to me. Patience and all it encompasses is another language. I am not friends, nor familiar with any aspect of it’s meaning.
The intellectual side of course knows what “patience” is:
Patience is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on annoyance/anger in a negative way; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. Patience is the level of endurance one’s character can take before negativity. It is also used to refer to the character trait of being steadfast. (wikipedia)
Religiously speaking I know that it is either one of seven virtues; or
A path to enlightenment and perfection; Bodhi.
I can even google “Patience” and find articles on How To.. But articles, or no articles, it’s just not in my blood. Which is why I firmly believe that this position, this job I’m in running for, is taking so long to decide upon the candidate they want is actually a test of my patience.
I am eager, dammit. I am eager to start answering the phone there. I am eager to find my niche’ and contribute to the best of my abilities. I know I am a rockstar for this position. I know that the growth has huge potential. I know that I’d finally feel “at home.”
Grant me the patience and serenity to make it through this test period. Provide me with the strength to carry it through. Provide me with the method to obtain this job. It is a wonderful opportunity for me, for growth, and to provide better for my family.
Besides, Dear Lord, You made me a rockstar with Tiger’s Blood. I own this position, please, just make it come to fruition.
