Patience: A Poem

Patience is a virtue some would say
But people don't usually practice it any day.

Patience is part of the Fruit of the Spirit
As well as love, kindness, and all the others
That we should be showing to our sisters and brothers

In living for Christ we should be showing all the fruit
For he is the way, the truth, and the life
Nothing else will suffice
For Christ died for you and me
On the cross at Calvary.

He died because we had sinned
And without Him we could have never lived
So he came to earth and died on Calvary
So that we might be made free

So now if we repent and turn away from sin.
And put our faith and trust in Him
Then Christ will accept us and go within
And we will become born again.

Being born again we will become like a light
Very big and very bright
And as a light people will be able to see
That Christ is living in us indeed.

So believer let your fruit such as patience show and grow
So that others will see
Whether it be by word of mouth or deed.
That Christ is not dead but alive.
He is risen.
He is risen indeed.

I wrote that poem and I just thought I would share it with all of you.

That was a great poem and I am truly glad you shared it Michelle. I needed to read that right now as a reminder of what He did for me and you at Calvary.

Thanks because the last few days have been a little frustrating, chaotic, etc.

You have a God given talent for writing wonderful poetry. Keep it up !!
