Great, I'm doomed!

I was just reading my devotions for today and it was definitely a word in due season for me--nothing I don't already know, but a good reminder. Here's what it said:

"Due season" is God's season, not our. We are in a hurry; God isn't. He takes time to do things right--He lays a solid foundation before He attempts to build a building. We are God's building under construction. He is the Master Builder, and He knows what He is doing. We may not know what He is doing, but He does, and that will have to be good enough. We may not always know, but we can be satisfied to know the One Who knows. God's timing seems to be his own little secret...It seems that He takes every available opportunity to develop the fruit of patience in us...Patience is a fruit of the Spirit that grows under trial...Patience is vital to the development of our full potential. Actually, our potential is only developed as our patience is developed. It is God's way--there is no other, so why not settle down and enjoy the journey?

Great, I'm DOOMED!! lol That was my first thought anyways. Actually, Allison and I were talking about just this thing tonight on the phone and I was voicing my impatience (go figure!) with God still trying to teach me this lesson. I KNOW that God always comes through at the last minute and that he will ALWAYS take care of me. I KNOW IT. Can't we move on to something else now and finally cut me a break in that area??? *sigh* No. Because I guess I still don't know it all the way. I still stress and try to figure things out myself. Sorry Lord, I'll keep working on it. Thank you for being so faithful to me--I love you (more than pork chops).
