Special Guest Post: Patience revisited

God has been so graciously patient with us, why then are we impatient with Him, ourselves & others?

“Let nothing perturb you, nothing frighten you. All things pass. God does not change. Patience achieves everything.” ~ Mother Teresa

...walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (Ephesians 4:1-3 NASB) [wow love, peace, patience, & gentleness]

The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9 NIV84)

Have you been practicing patience? It's a gift! Receive it, put it into practice today! twitter:margiedoh  facebook:margie doherty
