Patience

Patience: 
the quality of bearing offences without anger or revenge;
trusting the timetables of the Lord

I believe that patience is one of the most important qualities a human being may possess. If one has patience, everything else in life seems just a little bit easier. Weeks spent waiting to find a job and where grocery money is running low don't seem as long, far-off dreams of a beautiful home and a loving family aren't so far away, and years spent widowed and lonely can be more bearable, if only we rely on the Lord and have patience in his intentions.  I hope that I can do better on this in my own life and know that any person who is willing to work on it will find that it makes a difference in all areas of life.

"...let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith" Hebrews 12:1-3
