In His Word Wednesday - Patience

Fruits of the Spirit -- Patience

Hebrews 12:6
We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.

Colossians 3:12
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.

Ecclesiastes 7:8
The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride.

Colossians 1:11
being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.

This is a tough one! Well, all the fruits of the spirit are tough, but
this one really gets me! -- especially when it comes to the kids!
They just find a way to push all the buttons, ya know.....

But it's certainly one that, with God's
help we can all work on. (I know I can!)
What has God been teaching you lately.
Do you have a prayer request?
Do you have a Bible verse that has stuck out to you?
You can just leave your link, words, or prayer request here as a comment. We'd love to know how to pray for you. If you don't want to elaborate just let us know you have an unspoken prayer request. We can still pray for you because God already knows!!
