MY BROTHERN, COUNT IT ALL JOY WHEN YOU FALL INTO
VARIOUS TRAILS, KNOWING THAT THE TESTING OF YOUR
FAITH PRODUCES PATIENCE.  (JAMES 1:2-3 *NKJV)

Dear Fiend,
We all have times in our lives when our patience and our
endurance seem to be running low.  Times that we may
even think that we can’t take it anymore.  When that happens
to   you remember that our Heavenly Father is a; 
GOD OF PATIENCE
AND COMFORT. ( ROMANS 15:5 ) 
He is always
there for us, and will lead us out of our problems if we practice
patience.

Now we learn by reading the Scriptures that patience is a
Virtue. FOR WHATEVER THINGS WERE WRITTEN BEFORE
WERE WRITTEN FOR OUR LEARNING, THAT WE THROUGH
THE PATIENCE AND COMFORT OF THE SCRIPTURES MIGHT
HAVE HOPE.  ( ROMANS 15:4 )

Further by learning about how God has handled things in
the past gives us knowledge of how He will handle the future
as well.  Remember the story of Job and how he endured?
The Bible tells us; 
INDEED WE COUNT THEM BLESSED WHO
ENDURE. YOU HAVE HEARD OF THE PATIENCE OF JOB
AND SEEN THE END INTENDED BY THE LORD-THAT
THE LORD IS VERY COMPASSIONATE AND MERCIFUL.
( JAMES 5:11 )

So never give up, wait patiently and be sure; THAT YOU DO
NOT BECOME SLUGGISH, BUT IMITATORS OF THOSE
WHO THROUGH FAITH AND PATIENCE INHERIT THE
PROMISES.   ( HEBREWS 6:12 )

Therefore Friend, MAY THE LORD DIRECT YOUR HEART
INTO THE LOVE OF GOD AND INTO THE PATIENCE OF
CHRIST.  ( 2 THES 3:5 ) 
and; LET PATIENCE HAVE ITS
PERFECT WORK, THAT YOU MAY BE PERFECT AND
COMPLETE, LACKING NOTHING.   Amen.
( JAMES 1:4 )

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
