I am not what you would call an overly religious person. I believe in God. I have read and continue to read God's Word. I send my grandchildren to church. And I pray. Everyday!
There are some good verses in the Bible that deal with patience and impatience.
"A hot tempered man stirs up dissension, but a patient man calms a quarrel"
We need to learn that being impatient will not solve problems
"I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard me cry"
I am sometimes angry with the Lord. But I know that if I wait patiently he will hear me.
"Through patience a ruler can be persuaded, and a gentle tongue can break a bone."
I take this to mean that gentleness and patience can overcome the most obstinate and powerful thing.
