Be Patience

Today I was doing some bible study on being patience and found three bible verses that hit home. “Fools show their annoyance at once” (Prov. 12:16). And “It is to one’s honor to avoid strife, but every fool is quick to quarrel” (20:3). “Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end” (29:11). “ I never had any patience. I wished that I could practice patience, but it is hard for someone like me.

God will help you

I feel that I know everything and I feel that I should have the last word. How can a person like me practice patience? Once again we have to track our emotions to see what makes us become impatient. The first thing to remember is that things will work out in due time. As long as we work towards our goals, God will help us accomplish them, so it is no need to be impatient. If you feel like you are becoming impatience, step back and re-evaluate the situation. Authors Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat wrote “Practice patience in your relationships by not trying to force changes in others or demand immediate attention to your needs.

Patience Exercises

Try this simple patience exercise. When you ask someone to do something, make it clear that this request will be done “when the other person is ready.” Don’t complain if it takes longer than you expected or wanted it to. Write down what you trying to accomplish and plan steps to accomplish them.  This way you do not have to run up your blood pressure or get on anybody nerves.  Approaching others with a calm attitude, help others to see God. Add tracking impatience on your to-do list, so we do not act like fools.
