Planting Patience

Own more patience;
Make Christ an acquaintance;
Endure distress;
And God will bless.

Be slow to anger
By holding the Anchor.
Taking in the love
From up above.

Patient and kind;
Keeping Christ in mind;
When He hung around sinners;
And all the beginners.

Plant patience in places;
Waiting for traces.
Willing to learn
Of the Lord’s return.

Waiting for people
To join at the steeple.
Maintaining expectation
Filled with affirmation.

Growing and changing;
Sharing and rearranging.
Maintaining a good pace
But cutting some grace.

    I enjoy writing inspirational poems and this one is inspired by a recent sermon at my church. My hope is that it will help us step ahead by planting patience in our soul.
