Blessings Big Time,,,,
       I am sure you know the number one Book on patience & that is "the Book of Job",I never really cared for that answer myself as I would not want to go through what Job went through to learn patience.......but my favorite verse in Scripture referring to patience is Psalm 27:14

 

Wait on the Lord ;be of good courage,and He shall strengthen your heart;wait,I say,on the Lord!                                          Psalm 27:14

its okay Big time, we all lack something as christians. right now my faith is being tested big time - pun not intended. right now my faith feels like its being stretched and pulled and reaching its limit but i did ask for patience and to become stronger so this might be the answer. you see if we ask to be stronger God often times gives an oppurtunity to be strong. the same with any other prayer whether that be love or patience and such. might i suggest instead of complaining all the time give thanks for your trials as they are likely the answer to your prayers. hard work builds character and honestly without our faith being tested i think we would grow lazy and never get any stronger

Hello Brother Big-Time

 

I think you have received very wise input  :emot-rolleyes:   ....I also think this is a good subject.....Maybe the fact that you are complaining so much means that you need to learn what God is trying to teach you ? Not easy being corrected from a parent let alone God himself ? Take it from me brother, I was always complaining to God until I became miserable and then the trails increased  :wacko: no fair !  

 

In my opinion, maybe take a quiet moment with God to reflect what is missing in your life or NEEDED? 

 

Love & Blessings Sis Agape  :wub:

Any good scripture on patience? because all I ever do is complain to Him.

Not scripture, but two quotes.

 

"Hope is patience with the lamp lit", (I think is was Tertullian) and "Patience is not in the waiting, it is how we wait" (Martin Luther)

 

How we wait? The lamp lit?

 

We keep the lamp lit by reading His Word, meditating on His Word. praying to Him. Spend at least 30 minutes a day reading His word, and then think about what you read, and how you can apply it to your life.

 

The reading and meditating alone produce patience, the knowledge you gain from the Word will mature into wisdom, and then patience comes naturally.

 

So it's a process, not a single scripture to follow. it's all of scripture!

I quit praying for patience when I realized God's way of giving you patience is to work it in you as you go through trials!

 

Instead, I pray for grace.

 

And when people are involved, I pray for God's love for them to flood my heart.
