Living Your Faith: Patience by Jeffery Scott Wallace

5 of 5 stars  *****

This book explains the great gift that patience is, a gift from God, a fruit of the Holy Spirit, and a gift that praises God. What power one possesses over anxiety, suffering, and frustration when one discovers through faith that patience confirms one's commitment to God. The result is always for righteousness and good. It just isn't convenient for an individual's time schedule. 

The need for patience is always evident in the world. When it arises, one must step back to see how self-centered one is in that circumstance. Distraction blurs the true reason for patience when one is living only for this world and for his or her own purpose.

Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. - James 5:7-8, NKJV
