I’ve been having some difficulty with patience lately. I’m three months into 34 years old and I’ve been internalizing where I am in life. Of course, I am not where I want to be. I’ve come a long way, but I have so much more that I want to accomplish. I sat down with someone recently to get some clarity on how I am feeling and they gave me a bible verse that is really resonating with me.
“Little by Little I will drive them out before you, until you have increased enough to take possession of the land.” ~Exodus 23:30
In context, this verse is talking about how God will deliver the land to His people. But he will do it, “little by little,” so that they are prepared to inhabit it. This is something that I have to remember. Even with all the goals I set for myself, God is only going to give me what He has adequately prepared me for. So even though I think I am not where I am supposed to be, God is preparing me little by little. And that isn’t exactly where I’m supposed to be.
To remember this concept, I designed a vinyl on canvas wall decor using watercolor and my Cricut Explore Air. And I have made the stylized version of the text public in Cricut Design Space so that you can use it to remind yourself of the little by little concept.
