Training In Patience


For you have need of patient endurance [to bear up under difficult circumstances without compromising], so that when you have carried out the will of God, you may enjoy to the full what is promised. Hebrews 10:36

How many of you have experienced these things. Overly loud person on their phone in a coffee shop, library, airport terminal waiting area or airplane. Perhaps a disgruntled person in line in front of you at a fast food restaurant constantly complaining. A driver who chooses to tailgate you for miles. Many things try our patience.

There are all kinds of people in the world. God did not make any of us alike and it is probably good. In life patience is required so you don't end up spouting off and getting into an argument that could even escalate into the police being called.

As a believer you are to be set apart. You are to handle situations in a different manner. If you find yourself in the middle of a trying situation ask God for strength to say and do the right things.

PRAYER: Each day Lord I need your help to love all kinds of people and to let you work through me in the lives of others. Sometimes it is hard so I know you will see me through. In Jesus' name. Amen.

  1. This is a season of my learning to be more patient. Husband having two rounds of surgerical procedure this month. Awaiting the final storm door to arrive and be installed. Awaiting a crew to build a yard barn in our yard. (Doors and yard barn contracted and confirmed in early June.) Door to be in store possibly tomorrow. The barn crew on the 28th. Because of the delay in the barn project, I am behind in another project. God is good inspite of what man does to us.
