The Power of Patience

We prove ourselves by… our patience… by the Holy Spirit within us, and by our sincere love (2 Corinthians 6:6 NLT2).

Inevitably I choose the wrong line whether it’s at a department store or ticket booth. I scan the line for the least amount of people and evaluate how efficient the clerk is but naturally, my wait time is longer than the line next to me. I smile about it now. The Lord is teaching me patience.

Patience is powerful. Pauses can be productive. God forms our character out of delay not in spite of it.
