    Something I am learning is how to have patience with every aspect of my life. This is also something I am teaching to my youth. This is hard for them since everything in today's world is so fast paced. I know there are lots of scripture out there on the matter so it makes for a good lesson. What are some scriptures you like regarding patience?
    I like this one:
    Psalm 37:34 Wait for the LORD, and keep to his way, and he will exalt you to possess the land; you will look on the destruction of the wicked.

    Just remember, "fastpaced" is relative. God never gives us more than we can handle [​IMG]

    Psalm 40:1-3.

    "I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD."

    Isaiah 40:31

    "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

    One of my FAVORITE verses is "Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD."
