Practice Patience

Alina Kanaski, 22

Patience is hard for us. We are born into a culture of instant gratification. We want what we want, and we want it now.

God calls us to a less demanding lifestyle. We are called to wait for God, to trust that “in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28, NIV).

Let’s practice being patient as God shapes us into God’s own image.
