I needed to read this verse today:
"Meanwhile, the saints stand passionately patient, keeping God's commands, staying faithful to Jesus."
Revelation 14:12 (The Message)
Wow. The term "passionately patient" stood out to me. Often being patient seems more like a chore than something to be passionate about. God reminded me this morning of His sovereignty over my life. That He will orchestrate the details of my life into a beautiful composition, on His time, not mine. Keeping God's commands and staying faithful to Jesus will help me develop this passion. And, I'm up for it!
Anyone else struggle, like me, with being passionate about your patience?
Come back and see me
