Brothers and sisters in Christ, in order for us to have patience; we have to have tolerance, because without it, we will all falter at patience. If we have tolerance ; then patience want be a problem. Patience is being able to tolerate situations and circumstances; that present itself in our lives. Patience is being still and praying about the matter and having faith that God will bring us through even this. There's nothing in our lives; that's to tough for God to handle, no matter how big it is. We have to remember, when we pray an d ask God for help, that our time and his times are two different times, but his answer to pray is always on time.
Because we want something done right away; doesn't mean it will happen, when we want it to, just know that \God will work it for you, one way or another.

If we can go through it and endure it; only means that our patience has brought us through the trials and the tribulations that we have encountered in our lives. Sometimes we have to ask for ask God for patience; if we don'[t have any, and always remember to say to yourself, Peace be Still, when we going through something, it always seem to calm the nerves.
