Patience And God

Day 5

      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.

Proverbs 15:18

"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

Psalm 40:1

"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.

Proverbs 25:15

"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.



  1. Excellent verses!! Being impatient will definitely not solve problems. It usually makes them worse.


I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
