FAITH: Patience! + PRAYER: Lord, I Come As A Child ...!






Patience Is A Virtue!
AND
Patient
Obedient
Endeavoring
Through Christ Jesus
Leads Unto Eternal Life!

Getting Flustered
Because You Can't Get
Instant Gratification
Only Wears On The Nerves
AND
Does Not Gain One
A Blessing
BUT
Ascribes To One
A Curse!

Do You Believe
The Living Word Says:

"But Let Patience Have
Her Perfect Work ...!"

Because It Needed Something Cute To Say?!

No!
Patience Is A Necessity
For God's Children
BECAUSE
Instant Gratification
Is
Satan's Best ... Ploy
For
A Botched Life ... Play!

Take Time To Think!
Take Time To Pray!
Take A Little Breath
AND
Ask Jesus Christ
To Lead You On Your Way!

Hasty Pudding Ain't Tasty!
It's Just Prepared Fast
AND
That Is All You Get
Besides Wasted Ingredients
AND
Grimaces
From The Faces
Whose Tongues
Your Abomination Did Blast!

So, Be Patient ...

Try Counting
From One To 100
Using Only One Sound
While Enunciating Every Number!
If
You Can Do That
For Sure, My Friend
You Can Surely Steal
Lightning's Thunder Fast!

One Step!
Two Steps!
Three Steps!
Four!
Foot
In Front Foot
Walking
That's How You Exit a Door!

Running Through Glass Doors
Breaks the Glass
AND
Hurts
AND
Also Cuts You Up
So, Please
Take A Page
Out Of Patience's Book
AND
By Jesus
Your Name Will Be Written
Plain
Boldly
In The Lamb's Book Of Life
Where None 
- No Angel
No Demon
No Loose Man Playing King -
Can Remove It
For
You Will Have
- In Patience -
Walked With The Master
AND
Will
- In The Glorious Day -
With The Other Faithful
Patient Ones
Be Joyfully Celebrating!



PRAYER:

Father,
I Come To You As A Child
Seeking Guidance!

In Sincerity Of Heart, Lord
I Desire To Be Perfect
So I Am Pleading With You
To Help Me To Allow
Patience
To Do Her Perfect Work In Me
So That
In The Coming Day
I Will Have Held On The Promise
For The Win
To Become Perfect As My Master
Who Is Holy And True!

Help Me Not To Get Caught Up
In The Minutiae Of This World
Wrangling
Wresting
Wrestling To Be Eminent
And
Ending Up
Living In And With Known Sin
And
In Ratcheted Chains
Struggling To Be Free
But
In Vain!

Father,
Open My Eyes
Unstop My Ears
And
Fashion Me A New Heart
So That I Will Willingly
Give Unto You
For Safe Keeping
My Will And My Way!
Please Bound Up My Will
To Do Your Bidding
So That I From You May Never Stray
To Carry On Like A Clamoring Upstart!

Lift Me Up To Honor You, Lord!
And
Teach Me To Walk In Faithful Patience
Each Day!
And, Lord,
Let Not Satan Get The Mastery Of Me
To Turn Me Into A Knackered Out Steed
For
I Love
And
Worship
Only You!
Please Bless Me
So That
Spiritually
In Have Need Of Nothing!
In Jesus' Holy Name I Humbly Plead!
Save Me!
AMEN.
