Patience is better than power, and controlling one’s temper, than capturing a city.
Today look for opportunities to draw upon your patience. This means not being controlled by emotions, or letting circumstances unravel you. It’s easier to deal with something when you use a calm reserved demeanor.
Anger, strife can leave one exhausted and incapable of finding solutions – it can escalate things that should not be.
Declare today I am capable of remaining calm. I can learn to solve problems in a calm manner in dealing with my spouse, children, my boss – or the stranger that just cut me off on the road. I will dwell in the spirit of kindess and understanding – living like God wants me to.
