The first step to patience is allowing yourself to understand that we are nit always in control of our circumstances.Patience creates feelings of peace and calm, as opposed to the anger and frustration that often arises with impatience.
In Galatians, patience is listed as part of the “fruit of the Spirit”: “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law”. (Galatians 5:21-23, NIV). In Timothy, the Bible states that “Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life”.(1 Timothy 1:15-17, NIV).
Set your mind to ease and trust that all things come in time. That is the first step. Take your time in all things you do today. Things all help your formulate patience.
