patience is a virtue... I don't have it.

I read this scripture and I like it a lot... what do you think?

"For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. And we pray this in order that you may LIVE A LIFE worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way; bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and PATIENCE, and JOYFULLY giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. For he has RESCUED us from the DOMINION of DARKNESS and brought us in the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of Sins." 1 Colossians 1: 9-14

I just think that's an awesome passage. I definitely need to work on living life to please God in every way and bearing the fruit I was blessed with. I know patience is not my fruit of the spirit... that's FOR SURE! I am so impatient! I hate that.... but I have tried to control it and there just is no controlling it. We all know that if we pray for patience, God will give us something to be patient about. Let me TELL YOU... I know that most certainly is true.

First few days of classes... CHECK! Completed...

I think I am going to like this semester. It is definitely going to be a lot of reading and work... but I think I will like all my classes. I have Pharmacology, Common Health Problems (those are my 2 nursing classes..) and Short Fiction, and Philosophy of Religion are 2 of the final 4 general elective courses I have left in my college career. LOL!

Well... that's all I have for right now... let me know what you think about the passage I posted.. any different thoughts on it??

I agree! I have absolutely no patience...and the "Joyfully" part is what I need to work on. I tend to get so frustrated lately! I hope all your classes are going well!
