In Patience Possess Your Souls

Luke 21:19
“Faith is not simply a patience that passively suffers until the storm is past. Rather, it is a spirit that bears things - with resignations, yes, but above all, with blazing, serene hope.” Corazon Aquino

Patience is not passive! When we think of patience, we think of being still and operating in “wait mode”. Patience can best be described as: To bear pains or trials calmly without complaint. Forbearance under provocation or strain. Not hastily, but steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity; able or willing to bear. There are many who are going thru hard trials and tribulations. Some may even feel like quitting, giving up or throwing in the towel. There are some who are saying what is the use, I have been struggling for a long time and I do not see any changes. I want to encourage you today; don’t give up, don’t give in but in patience possess (hold, seize and acquire) your souls. In times when you may be feeling down, here is a little poem to help pick you up:

Don't Quit
by: Unknown Author

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

James 1:3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. We can never really know the depth of our character until we see how we react under pressure. Instead of complaining or running from our struggles, let us exercise a little patience in the trial and tribulations viewing them as opportunities for growth. Let us pray and ask God for help to solve the problem; along with patience and strength to endure whatever comes our way. God loves you and so do I….. Pastor Tammy
