Patience
 
 
Haste can be the death blow
 
to calmness, dignity and to poise.
 
 Haste can pay the highest price for everything.
 
Some have sacrificed time, energy, health, home,
 
and happiness in their haste to be well known
 
or to acquire material things.
 
 
 
 
 "Haste" might properly be placed
 
on thousands of cemetery headstones.

In the race for wealth
or the haste to attain some ambition,
 to gratify the dream of life,
some have thrown honor, truth, and genuineness
to the winds.

I realize God's delays are not denials. I learned that God's delays could
 
be opportunities for Him to work out our problems and accomplish
 
our desires in the most wonderful way possible for us.

 

 Trust in the Lord with all your heart

and lean not on your own understanding;

Proverbs 3:5

 

 
 
 
 Most things that are great in life are as a result of slow growth; 
 
the newer, the greater, the higher, and nobler the work,
 
the slower is its growth, the more likely is its lasting success.
 
 

 Think about it...

 
It has been said:
Mushrooms attain their full power in a night;
 
 
 oaks require decades.
 
Fads are around for a few months;
  
a philosophy lives and impacts generations.
 
 
Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold.
 
For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you.
 
So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs,
 
and they will then be powerless to vex your mind.
 
Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) 
 
 
Making any change requires patience.
 
Cultivating patience is really learning impulse control. 

        

We Must Patiently Persevere.

God often does us a favor by giving us more time to get ready.

One of the best ways we can invest our energy during a dream’s delay

is in preparing more fully for the responsibilities

it will require if it comes about.


God's way, time, will, and solutions are always best.
 
So often we are looking for quick fixes and instant results;
 
however, true growth takes time. 
 
 


I waited patiently for the LORD;
 
He turned to me and heard my cry.
 
Psalm 40:1
 
Let us learn to take heart, patiently endure, and wait for God.

 
But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength;
 
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
 
They shall run and not be weary,
 
They shall walk and not faint.


Isaiah 40:31
