6 truths about patience

From Pastor Charles Neiman:

Patience is

  • not resignation. It is not about coping. It is a power force.
  • the power of being sound. It is not stop and go bursts, it is constant.
  • the opposite of fear; Patience gets you through feeling weary and faint
  • that thing that keeps you single-minded; When pressure comes, there will be the voice of patience that will come to tell you to keep your goal in mind.
  • a spirit or attitude that refuses to be daunted by difficulties.
  • the quality of character that does not allow a person to surrender to circumstances or succumb under trials.
