Patience is a virtue!

It is my turn this week to set the challenge for SALT. I chose the theme of PATIENCE A continuous life lesson, that I am struggling to learn! There is so much to learn; PATIENCE as a fruit of the Holy Spirit, waiting PATIENTLY in the Lord, how the Lord is PATIENT with us! How we should be PATIENT with others!

My inspiration came from a daily devotional page that my dear friend gave to me, it was very reassuring and talked of resting in God and waiting patiently in him Psalm 37:7, I will quote some of what it says "there are things you cant have today that you'll be able to have in the future. So it doesnt make sense to drive yourself crazy and put your life on hold struggling to accomplish something now that'll be easy when the time is right...." "God allows certain things to take place in our lives to teach us important principles...." "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans12:12 when you spend time in God's waiting room, He's developing qualities in you that simply can't be deceloped any other way.
When He's finished you will come out stronger and wiser..."

Stunning layout Esther! I love how you incorporated the devotional page and the clock, showing that we need to wait upon God (and it might take some time!) to see changes in our lives. Thank you for this wonderful theme!

Your LO is truly beautiful, Esther. Good choice of topic - I certainly need more patience. And I thought I'd come across the wording before and now, of course, recognise it from 'word for today' (would recommend to anyone)
