Waiting God's Way - Galatians 5:22

Galatians 5:22 -- "But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness."

Patience is hard! I'm not going to tell you otherwise. Waiting is hard and so is not knowing. Unfortunately, there is no way to learn patience except through experiencing an often uncomfortable wait. We must not shy away from difficult situations. Instead, we must reach out to God to help us in each circumstance.

When we wait God's way, we will be satisfied, lacking nothing because He is teaching us how to live by the fruit of the Spirit - patience. Through these times of waiting, where our patience is growing, we are also coming closer to God. It is hard to wait, but the benefits that patience brings is worth the wait.
