Ecclesiastes 7:8
The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride.

2 Corinthians 6:6
in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love;

Colossians 3:12
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

I have, for the past 5 months, been dealing with an anti-immune skin disease called Bullous Pemphigoid.  Never heard of it?  Neither did I and, honestly, I don't think that my Dermatologist had ever treated it before.  She is very sweet and also very young in her profession.
I am now on the positive side of "remission"  due to the power of prayer, God giving knowledge to my doctor on treatment and PATIENCE.

PATIENCE is a really good thing that is referred to in Scripture over and over again.

Romans 8:25
But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
Micah 7:7
But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.

The power of prayer is beyond our understanding. When we seek Him with a sincere and humble heart, our eyes are opened and our souls are healed, lending patience, grace and thanksgiving. Be blessed team and thank you for featuring my bookmark. All of my prayers are written as life testimonies and dedicated to our Lord, Jesus Christ. May all of you be blessed, as well as every extension of you, until His blessings reach all of mankind. Cynthia

Another word for patience is long suffering. Self explanatory.

It's a fruit (or result) of Holy Spirits presence in our life.

Never complaining, waiting on the Lord, who's never late or early. Always exactly on time.

Beautiful ode of thanksgiving, Sue
