I have another encouraging word for you beautiful ladies! It is all about patience today! I don’t know about you all, but I need a little patience in my life. I need a little more patience in dealing with others and myself. If you are struggling with this same issue, this blog post is for you! During this blog, we will study what the words say about why we should have patience with leaders that are placed over us, how having wisdom yields patience, and how the end of something is better than the beginning. If you are a person that rather listens to videos, please click play on the video above. Ladies let's jump right into our study on patience 😊!
What is Patience?
Patience-the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset
Capacity- the maximum amount that something can contain, the amount that something can produce
Tolerate- allow the existence, occurrence, or practice of (something that one does not necessarily like or agree with
After reading the definition, we can see that patience is being able to tolerate the things that we don’t like, especially when these things do not change right away. God wants us to have patience with others and ourselves because patience takes restrictions off God! Ladies, have you ever noticed that as soon as you let things go and calm down, God moves in your situation at that moment? I have! God has done this time and time again. Patience is the part of love that allows us to learn what our weaknesses are, and it gives us space to change. This is a full word for some of us! Can I love others and myself enough to allow room to change?
Now that we have learned a little more about the meaning of patience, let's read our first scripture!
Through patience, a ruler can be persuaded, and a gentle tongue can break a bone -Proverbs 25:15
Gentle-having or showing a mild, kind, or tender temperament or character.
