The Power of Patience

A woman on a pier looks heavenward at sundown

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.—Romans 12:12 (NIV)

Patience is a fruit of the Spirit, yet periods of waiting have a way of testing your faith. In stressful times, when nothing seems to be going right, 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:

Maker of Time, help me fight fear and impatience with trust.
