“Patience Please”

Categories: Minister's Corner

I want PATIENCE and I want it now!  Can you relate?  Do you ever feel this way?  Do you feel frustrated because of…?  We all get frustrated for so many different reasons.  I know I

certainly do!  

Patience is a virtue that is needed to successfully navigate through the frustrating and

challenging areas of life.  It takes a healthy dose of patience to walk through these

challenging areas while waiting for something better.  

Someone has said, “Patience is not simply the ability to wait - it's how we behave while we're waiting.” As we wait out the frustrations that life has to offer in search of something better let’s learn to behave like Christ. 

Paul says that we must be in hot pursuit of PATIENCE as we walk by faith in Jesus (1 Timothy 6:11). Titus instructs that PATIENCE is a notable characteristic of the mature follower of Christ (Titus 2:2).  Trials and the testing of our faith produces the most amazing qualities of life —faith and patience. 

Let’s be disciplined to remain full of faith while we wait for something much so much better than trials .  Let’s behave well in order bring honor and glory to our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
