From Trouble to Hope

We also have joy with our troubles, because we know that these troubles produce patience.  And patience produces character, and character produces hope.  And this hope will never disappoint us, because God has poured out His love to fill our hearts.” ~Romans 5:3-5

The past two – well, nearly three years I’ve been telling myself that God is trying to teach me patience.  It hasn’t been going well.  I’ve made progress, but it’s been minuscule.  I’m still one of the least patient people you’ll ever meet – ask my friends and family – they’ll tell you.  But if patience produces character . . . and character produces hope . . . then I guess I’ll keep trying. ‘Cause hope is something I’d like a lot more of around here.

One thought on “From Trouble to Hope”

  1. Patience isn’t one of my strongest virtues either. I have seen some progress but it’s oh, so, slow! I’ve found whispering “It’s not all about me” when I’m getting frustrated with the waiting helps.
