The Power of Patience

Sunbeams stream through the trees of a forest
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.—Romans 12:12 (NIV)
Patience is a fruit of the Spirit and yet periods of waiting often chip away at your trust and faith. In stressful times, when nothing seems to be going your way, it’s important to be mindful that God is in control. He will give you the desires of your heart in His time.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, help me fight fear and impatience with trust.
