I WAITED PATIENTLY FOR THE LORD: HE TURNED TO ME
AND HEARD MY CRY. ( PSALM 40:1 *NIV )

Dear Friend,

Patience has become a lost art in this World of ours today.
We have come to expect instant answers and results with
everything, even including our prayers as an example. Now
another example is when we watch evil men commit crimes or
cheat others, and seem to get away with it.

Therefore we are to practice patience, knowing that God
is in Control, and God’s justice will be served! So; BROTHERS, AS AN
EXAMPLE OF PATIENCE IN THE FACE OF SUFFERING, TAKE
THE PROPHETS WHO SPOKE IN THE NAME OF THE LORD.
AS YOU KNOW, WE CONSIDER BLESSED THOSE WHO HAVE
PERSEVERED. YOU HAVE HEARD OF JOB’S PERSEVERANCE
AND HAVE SEEN WHAT THE LORD FINALLY BROUGHT ABOUT.
THE LORD IS FULL OF COMPASSION AND MERCY.
( JAMES 5:10-12 )

So Friend, REST IN THE LORD, AND WAIT PATIENTLY FOR
HIM; DO NOT FRET BECAUSE OF HIM WHO PROSPERS IN HIS
WAY, BECAUSE OF THE MAN WHO BRINGS WICKED SCHEMES
TO PASS. FOR EVILDOERS SHALL BE CUT OFF; BUT THOSE
WHO WAIT ON THE LORD, THEY SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH.
FOR YET A LITTLE WHILE THE WICKED SHALL BE NO MORE.
( PSALM 37:7 & 9-10 ) Therefore my friend, WAIT FOR THE LORD;
BE STRONG AND TAKE HEART AND WAIT FOR THE LORD.
Amen. ( PSALM 27:14 )

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
