In praise of patience

J.D. Hatfield reminds Christians of the benefits of patience:
There is no “secret” of spirituality or “formula” for faith. There is a plan, and it involves staying the course, walking the narrow path. We depend on Jesus for our life, and our Father for our daily bread. The Holy Spirit will lead us into a more passionate relationship with God if we will only take the time to struggle with the questions. Then we may learn lessons that will enable us to overcome our problems at the root level. It’s the difference between a brief and a broad victory.
Amen. I recommend reading J.D.'s whole article.

take shelter under the wings of the Love of God. struggle is that stuff between the power of evil and the Power of God. try not to go walking out into the middle of the struggle.

be patient with the questions and
stay under God's power...friendly territory.
and don't forget to wear the armor.
