Patience is God’s hallmark!

#UsNotSoMuch #lovingeacotherunconditionally grows patience.

When we are tempted to just – cream the person who has hurt us – we need to remember that every day we sin and God still loves us. In Psalm 145:8-9  (MSG)David declares,

God is all mercy and grace—  not quick to anger, is rich in love.God is good to one and all; everything he does is suffused with grace.

Hurt and pain sometimes prevent us from remembering these Scriptures and we just want to lash out when we have been offended or hurt.  So, plead at the foot of the cross for His gift of patience. His gift of longsuffering. Paul, who experienced every kind of emotional attack that a human being could endure at the hands of religious people pronounced in Philippians 4:10-14

10-14 I’m glad in God, far happier than you would ever guess—happy that you’re again showing such strong concern for me. Not that you ever quit praying and thinking about me. You just had no chance to show it. Actually, I don’t have a sense of needing anything personally. I’ve learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I’m just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I’ve found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am. I don’t mean that your help didn’t mean a lot to me—it did. It was a beautiful thing that you came alongside me in my troubles.

God is right there with you in the middle of all your troubles. Want to see how? Want to know why? Want to experience that assurance? Contact us and we will help you come to the beautiful realization that you are not alone in your struggles.

The Lord is Gracious and Compassionate is a wonderful song of praise and exhortation.
