Faith Worketh Patience

I am here waiting

Waiting for a change

Change seems to be slow

Slow appears to be the answer no

No to my desires, no to my dreams

Dreams sustain my hopes for tomorrow

Tomorrow feels like forever

Forever I must wait for

For patience works perfection

Perfection is what He wants for me

Me–to be happy, satisfied, and fulfilled

Fulfilled with His will, His plans

Plans for good and not for evil

Evil has no control, no place to root

Root out all ambivalence

Ambivalence hinders Faith

Faith functions through works

Works I will do to prove my Faith

      Thank you for your encouragement. Sometimes we just have to encourage ourselves with the promises of God.

      I read the verse–true words of encouragement. Thank you. My favorite is Psalm 23. He is Jehovah Jireh, my Provider.

        So many names to study, so little time. We’re doing a book called The God We Can Know: Exploring the “I Am” Sayings of Jesus in Sunday School for Lent. I’m really liking it.

        There are many names for our Lord. I do not know them all.
