    In fact, my initial desires are not what are always best for me. The Bible has so much to say about patience, but I find myself struggling to always apply patience. What does Biblical patience look like? The word patience used in Galatians 5:22, is the Greek word, makrothumia, which means “long-suffering or slowness in avenging wrongs.” Patience is even listed in the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). If patience is something that exemplifies qualities of the Spirit, then when we are impatient, we are truly living by the flesh. In fact, Galatians 5:16 tells us not to gratify the desires of the flesh. Biblical patience is forgiving others when they hurt you or being gentle towards other weaknesses and helping them. A practical implication of this may be a school teacher who is frustrated with a student who is having trouble following instructions in class. Initially, the teacher’s fleshly desires would be to blow up at the student. However, Biblical patience would be for the teacher to be slow to anger towards a student, when they least feel like it. I understand that this is easier said than done, but God is capable from changing our sinful reactions to one that honors…

    Chastity laid the journal on her lap when she heard the tiny footsteps of her daughter, and then the screen door creak open. Patience was carrying her doll Sue by the arm, her light golden brown hair slightly ruffled from where she had slept on it. Wide eyed and grinning, she quickly ran over to the small table, and then dropped to her knees in front of the jar. “Mommy watch the roly-roly baby buggies?” asked Patience, as she brushed a few strands of hair from her face. “Yes, sweetie, I did,”…

    RDG099 Pro. Mitchell Lucy Bergin 11/1/2015 Patience||| ||| Patience is necessary for success. It is said that “all good things come to those who wait” If we wish to achieve anything of significance, we cannot expect to achieve it overnight. Patience teaches us to value the effort and not just the success. It is a mistake to think that happiness can only be attained through certain achievements. Patience takes time to learn if you aren’t born with it. You have to be able to trust and wait.…

    Abstaining from sound has become a vilified commodity. When a word is not spoken and the body does not show emotion, the general public finds the time to subconsciously create a sort of awkward-ness. Silence is constantly mistaken for this second cousin of insecurity. It is built to establish constant connection with inner peace in order to ensure patience as the first option in opposing situations. As snow falls at 1 a.m. in December, the beautiful sound is a personification of pure confidence.…

    primary care physician but also a hand full of specialists and they feel they still have not received an accurate diagnosis. It’s easy for docs to roll their eyes at this kind of patient and assume they are doing their very best to be difficult and stubborn, but the truth is, without knowing them personally or treating them for a number of years, this is a dangerous assumption. All patients should be handled with the same regard and procedures. If the patient is clearly of sound mind and has…

    Patience is key for a judge because most times, people do not want to confess their crimes right away. However, Danforth showed that he did not hold this quality. Often times, he would try and force a confession of witchcraft out of people. He never gave people time to open up and either tell the truth, or lie. For example, Danforth makes Reverend Hale try to make Rebecca Nurse confess that she is a witch. Once Hale says that he needs more time to make her open up, Danforth gets mad because he…
