Becoming a Patient Woman



We develop patience when our hearts are connected to God.

I love instant gratification, which makes patience very hard to come by! Hi, I’m Renee Swope with Proverbs 31 Ministries.

In the past week I've raced through a yellow light, because I didn't want to stop at a red light.  I've looked up symptoms on the internet, because I didn't want to sit in a doctor’s office. I've paid extra at a convenience store because I didn't want to drive to the grocery store. Though I can’t recall an example, I’m pretty sure I also lost my patience and fussed at my kids, too.

I want what I want, and I want it now.  Yet the Bible says patience should be a way of life if I’m going to follow Jesus.  It tells us to live our lives “with humility, gentleness, and patience.”

Patience is developed when my heart is connected to God. It grows from my confidence in the fact that He’s in control and that He can work out everything in His way and in His timing.
