How to Increase Your Level of Patience & Learn to Wait: Do This One Thing to Find Strength while You Endure
l know that patience is a virtue. Yet, there are degrees of waiting.
I mean--waiting in line is one thing. Waiting for healing is quite another.
Watching the clock for a kid to come home is one thing. Waiting for his salvation is another.
Holding on the phone is one thing. Waiting for God to "rescue" us from an ongoing, sticky situation a different ballgame.
In Psalm 6, David eloquently describes himself as he waits. He feels faint. His bones ache and his eyes are weak and failing. His soul is anguished. He's worn out with groaning and crying all day long.

Yeah, we could say tensions are really running high these days.
With good reasons, I suppose.
And exactly how are we feeling?
Fear and Anxiety keep knocking at the doors of our minds and hearts as well, so the recipe seems ripe to ruffle a few feathers.
Divisiveness is racking our country, from hate-filled racism to the mask debate. Our dear "neighbor" is at wit's end, too, and it doesn't take much to set them off.
Whether we're on the offensive or defensive end of the shortened fuse, there are a few things you we can do to help ourselves calm down just a bit.
In general, my anger "meter" is a good indicator of my internal condition. Often if I find myself rattled at the smallest thing, I know that it's time for me to slow down and come to grips with what's churning inside.
Perhaps God's trying to get my attention. Maybe He'd like me to see an issue from a different perspective. Or it could be my Father is calling me to mature in wisdom and to understand what it means to operate with the mind of Christ. Is now the time I learn how to lay down my "rights," hold my tongue, avoid a quick retort, and choose humility and patience instead?
Putting aside anger doesn't always come naturally or feel easy, but having peace inside my heart and mind are pretty much priceless in my book.
Have you noticed heightened anger these days, too? Leave me a comment here or shoot me a DM at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to chat a bit more. I'd love to hear from you!
But everyone must be quick to hear,
