Hello again! I can't believe it has been 2 weeks since my last blog how time flies when you don't want it to!

Anyway, this week Esther from SALT has set the challenge of Patience. This is what Esther had to say to us:

A continuous life lesson, that I am struggling to learn!
There is so much to learn; PATIENCE as a fruit of the Holy Spirit,
waiting PATIENTLY in the Lord
How the Lord is PATIENT with us!
How we should be PATIENT with others
My inspiration came from a daily devotional page that my friend gave to me, it was very reassuring and talked of resting in God and waiting patiently in him Psalm 37:7, I will quote some of what it says "there are things you cant have today that you'll be able to have in the future. So it doesnt make sense to drive yourself crazy and put your life on hold struggling to accomplish something now that'll be easy when the time is right...." "God allows certain things to take place in our lives to teach us important principles...." "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans12:12 when you spend time in God's waiting room, He's developing qualities in you that simply can't be deceloped any other way.
When He's finished you will come out stronger and wiser..."

The verse "Be still and know that I am God" is a verse that sums patience up for me. When I read it I remember that God is in control!
Pop on over to SALT and join in with us. I personally feel encouraged and inspired when others join in on the challenge!

Grat Card Casey - great choice of verse for Patience. That is a verse that God constantly brings to my mind too - it is something that I need to do constantly, Thanks for sharing the devotion with us also.
