Patience: When Your Just Not Sure Enough

I read something today that really gripped me. It made me stop and decide that today I would worship my King in a whole new way. I read the statement, “Patience is an act of love.” My worship today is PATIENCE.

Think about it – we show our children, managers, relatives, and spouses our love when we don’t make judgment calls, when we don’t get things our way when we want them, but rather are patient with them. Through our patience they receive one of the greatest acts of love.

Paul lists “patience” and “long suffering” as fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22). Patience is a way of training our inner spirit to persevere. Patience is also a means to trusting in God. If we go forth in our own strength, we will faint, and utterly fall; but setting our hearts and our hopes in the Lord, we will be carried above all circumstances.

It’s not easy, but patience is faith being tested. God is using this period of time to mold us into the person He wants us to be. WE ARE LEARNING TO LOVE HIM DEEPER THAN EVER BEFORE. It’s part of the journey, especially if you’re stepping out in faith and trusting Him with everything.

Today I offer Him patience and must remember that God makes everything beautiful in His time (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

When the going gets tough
When the rides too rough
When you’re just not sure enough . . .

Jesus will still be there
His love will never change
Sure as the steady rain
Jesus will still be there
When no one else is true
Hell still be loving you
When it looks like you’ve lost it all
And you haven’t got a prayer
Jesus will still be there
