It is Friday morning and I am just too tired from the week to concentrate on my daily reading. This is suppose to be Tori and I’s fun day together (no doctors appointments, therapy or school) but I am feeling overwhelmed as well as tired. So I am going back to one of my favorite scriptures that reminds me I should be able to have patience today!
Clothe yourselves therefore, as God’s own chosen ones (His own picked representatives), [who are] purified and holy and well-beloved [by God Himself, by putting on behavior marked by] tenderhearted pity and mercy, kind feeling, a lowly opinion of yourselves, gentle ways, [and] patience [which is tireless and long-suffering, and has the power to endure whatever comes, with good temper]. (Colossians 3:12 AMP)
It is easier said than done, to be patient with good temper. I find I can only bear this type of fruit with continual prayer through the day that Jesus will help me be all of these things.
In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides]. (Ephesians 6:10 AMP)
