Exams and Patience

On Tuesday Bonnie and I both had our piano exams... we don't know the results yet but they should come some time this week. I always find that one of the hardest parts of an exam is waiting for the results to come! It's hard to be patient normally but it's even harder to be patient when there is something you really want that you are waiting for.

What does the bible say about patience? Quite a lot actually.

"...being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience..." -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

"Whoever is patient has great understanding,
but one who is quick-tempered displays folly." -Proverbs 14:29

Patience is a challenge but definitely something worth having! 
May the Lord bless you this week and may you know how patient and merciful our Heavenly Father is to us, far more than we could ever be! Romans 2:4 "Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience..."

"...being confident of this, is that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." -Philippians 1:6 NIV
