His Love is Patient

Love is patient. (I Corinthians 13:4 CSB)

Lord, I’m so grateful for Your patience when I lag behind or am slow to respond to certain convictions. So often I hear You telling me to do things, yet I get around to them when I feel like it rather than when You say. At the same time, I’m guilty of being impatient with my family and coworkers – they don’t move fast enough to fit my schedule. Please help me to be patient and kind toward others today to the same degree that I need patience and kindness myself. Keep my heart humble and help me to remember that love has the power to heal the most stressful and broken situations. In Your name.
