"He that can have patience, can have what he will." ~Benjamin Franklin~

I'm learning patience. You hear that patience is a virtue. Patience is a fruit of the sprirt. Patience is essential for every day life. But I seem to be lacking it lately. I used be extremely patient but as I have gotten older and have gone through things in my life, I have lost a lot of patience. Well, now I'm relearning patience and I'm not exactly succeeding at it. I feel like I'm failing quite miserably honestly. I get impatient when I'm waiting for my life to start moving again. I get impatient with my job. I get impatient at every single red light I hit. I get impatient when I'm the last on the list. I get impatient when I'm waiting for anything and everything. I just want to get moving. I have always been one to move constantly. I can be very still at times but mostly I am constantly moving in some way. My mind is always moving. But I think I need to learn to stand still. I need to slow down and look around. I need to see what is around me. There is more than what I'm seeing because I am always so urgent to move forward. I'm always wanting to move faster and be more. I need to relearn how to enjoy what I have and the quiet. I need to see the importance of stillness. There is much to get out of standing still. You miss the simple things when you are moving. You miss the beautiful moments of nature or even human nature. You miss the important things.

"A man's wisdom gives him patience, it is to his glory to overlook an offense." Proverbs 19:11

"Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger; in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love." 2 Corinthains 6:4-6

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, job, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law." Galatians 5:22

"And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in his inheritance of the saints of the kingdom of light." Colossians 1:11

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