Day 15: Patience

patience: bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint

: not hasty or impetuous

: steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity

PRAY: Today, Lord God, I lift up every leader who will be elected this November. I pray that each and every one would be a person of patience. Mold their hearts after yours, Jesus, making them like-minded toward the people they are elected to serve. Give them patience to bear the pains and trials of their electorates, and make them steadfast and not hasty in making decisions.

Romans 15:5

“Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus…”

Well loved! I have been blessed all my life to be surrounded by family and friends that nurtured, supported and loved me into the person that I have become. That love has sustained me throughout whatever circumstance I have found in life. It is the greatest gift that one can give and the essential ingredient to living life with no regrets. I reached this conclusion while lying in a hospital bed on life support for 70 days. Under those circumstances I dealt with the essential ingredients of my life. What was important? Why was I alive? What did my life mean?
