Patience is one of the strangest things in life. The more we want it, the harder it seems to get to have it. One time I prayed for more patience – and God answered the prayer. It was one of the hardest months of my life. Patience comes when we trust in God through hard times. Our patience can’t grow unless we go through those hard times.
In the end it is all about character – God is not just trying to get us to heaven, He is trying to get heaven into us – to change us from the inside out. Patience comes when I am fully rooted in Him, and He is the source of my life.
