Paciencia

No estoy con paciencia para Dios

Does this mean exactly "I have no patience with God" and if so, why not "no tengo paciencia para Dios" ?

Thanks

It's an unusual construction, but it means I'm not in the mood to have patience with god at this moment; perhaps it's something I think that may change some time.

"No tengo paciencia para dios" would rather express a constant character feature.

Ah - that makes sense in context. A Catholic doctor sickened by poverty in Brazil which causes child deaths. (El País - can't find the link)

Many thanks!

El sentimiento es bastante comprensible en semejante caso. ;(
