Day 4 – Patience
pa·tience /pey-shuhns/ η: 1 the quality of being patient, as the bearing of provocation, annoyance, misfortune, or pain, without complaint, loss of temper, irritation, or the like. 2 an ability or willingness to suppress restlessness or annoyance when confronted with delay. 3 quiet, steady perseverance; even-tempered care; diligence.
“… thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness …” (KJV, Neh 9:17)
Awareness Exercise: Throughout your day, observe when you feel patience and when you begin to feel the absence of patience. Notice the differences between the two states. Can you recognize whether you are being tender and true or not, has any bearing on the presence or absence of patience?
"The Divine Being … the patient, tender, and true, the One “altogether lovely;” (SH 3:12-14)
