Patience Fills Time

From James 1:2-4:  “My brothers and sisters, whenever you face various trials, consider it all joy, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance.  And let endurance complete its work, so that you may be complete and whole, lacking in nothing.”

Single stone slows march of time

Needing release from ocean’s waves

Reaching beneath, faith clearly climbs

Mercy of Christ always saves


Patience fills time, every hour

Following brightest light of Christ

Ringing from Heaven’s bell tower

Grace flows from blood sacrificed


Nature’s lasting, treasured gifts

Offering wellspring of Christ’s peace

Awakening from sinful drift

Hope renews from Spirit’s lease


Empty heart fills with Christ’s love

Overflowing confidence shines

Bestowing His Word from above

Trust in following each sign

From Galatians 5:22-24:  “By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.  There is no law against such things.  And those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”
