Patience has more to do with flexibility than perseverance.
Time is a precious commodity in America. This is unfortunate because patience is the antidote for worry.
Patience acknowledges Papa’s sovereignty. Teaching you to live in the moment— the present.
Patience is the perfect antidote for stress. No longer perceiving interruptions as negative but transformational opportunities. Stress becomes a fading memory. Judgmental conclusions and impulsive responses decrease.
Confidently you face the unknown future. Knowing if you keep your eyes focused on Papa, He’ll work out EVERYTHING according to His plan.
Instead of drowning in a perpetual to do list you earnestly seek Papa’s guidance. Allowing Him to be the master of your daily schedule.
Papa’s wisdom tells you when to delegate, delay or delete tasks so you can pursue His Kingdom purposes.
No longer exhausted or overwhelmed. You confidently and methodically complete tasks. Learning to strike a balance between rest and work.
Do not magnify the temporary cares and adverse circumstances of life!
Do not raise the white flag and surrender before you reach the finish line!
Papa is running along side of you. Cheering you on to victory!
Hang in there!
But if we hope for what is still unseen by us, we wait for it with patience and composure.
