With energy and strength, I wait.
Patience is an act of confidence that all is unfolding as it should—even when the process takes longer than I had hoped or expected. Patience is not laziness or indifference. I don’t have to push or force a result in order to feel as if I am making progress. But just as a farmer cannot hurry or worry a harvest into existence, I cannot rush results that must unfold in their own time. True patience is a silent energy, one that restores and strengthens. I deny power to any feelings of doubt or impatience, and while I wait, I pray. I stay focused on the present moment, comforted by a quiet faith, and patiently expecting the greater good to come.
May you be made strong … and may you be prepared to endure everything with patience.—Colossians 1:11
