PATIENCE…not my favorite word

Oh, my Father, You know how I hate using this word in my prayers, because James, in his letter, told me what I have to do to get it.

…and yet, I know I need this gift of the Spirit in so many areas of my life.

May my faith this day expand so I am willing to wait for You to direct everything I do…today and tomorrow and all the tomorrows which follow.

Make me like You, Father, because I pray in Jesus’ matchless name. Amen

Verse for Today: “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” (James 1:2-4)
