Thought to share: Patience is the word I give you today. Not everything will go your way and not everything will make you happy. Trust that I AM leading you and that MY grace will empower you to shine light in those trying situations. And as you wait, choose to rest in ME and refuse to make room for frustration and impatience. You’ll find your day goes much better when you walk in patience – and you will be able to display MY kindness.

Galatians 5:22 (TPT) But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions:  joy that overflows, peace that subdues, patience that endures, kindness in action, a life full of virtue, faith that prevails, gentleness of heart, and strength of spirit. Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless.

1Corinthians 13:4 (TPT) Love is large and incredibly patient. Love is gentle and consistently kind to all.

Thought to share: Worry blocks MY Presence. Worry prevents you from hearing MY voice. Worry will keep you from seeing MY hand working in your situation. I tell you not to worry because worry disconnects you from ME. So when worry presents itself to you, convert them into prayer, laying them all at MY feet. And as you do, I’ll exchange those worries for MY peace.

Matthew 6:25-34 (TPT) This is why I tell you to never be worried about your life, for all that you need will be provided, such as food, water, clothing—everything your body needs. Isn’t there more to your life than a meal? Isn’t your body more than clothing? Look at all the birds—do you think they worry about their existence? They don’t plant or reap or store up food, yet your heavenly Father provides them each with food. Aren’t you much more valuable to your Father than they? So, which one of you by worrying could add anything to your life? And why would you worry about your clothing? Look at all the beautiful flowers of the field. They don’t work or toil, and yet not even Solomon in all his splendor was robed in beauty more than one of these! So if God has clothed the meadow with hay, which is here for such a short time and then dried up and burned, won’t he provide for you the clothes you need—even though you live with such little faith? So then, forsake your worries! Why would you say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ For that is what the unbelievers chase after. Doesn’t your heavenly Father already know the things your bodies require? So above all, constantly chase after the realm of God’s kingdom and the righteousness that proceeds from him. Then all these less important things will be given to you abundantly. Refuse to worry about tomorrow, but deal with each challenge that comes your way, one day at a time. Tomorrow will take care of itself.”

Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT) Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
