Observation: It is my intention to focus on the positive part of the message today. I believe that I have spent enough time reinforcing the negative consequences of my past actions. Therefore, I will focus my attention on what my house will look like when I am solely directed at doing the will of the Father. I hope that I am on my way to accomplish it with the grace that continues to cover me from the Lord. I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work in you will continue to complete it until the day of Christ Jesus. 5 (Philippians 1:6)
Personification: Patience I will make it my intention of this day to work on making my life a more concrete example of the fruit of patience. It is very clear to me that it will take almost a miracle in my life to allow me to be able to display this fruit of patience, because of the place that I started. Again, I know that it is God’s will for me, so I will act intentionally to be able to display this fruit.
Prayer: Lord, I pray that you would allow me to show the fruit of patience that you have built in me today. I know that I still have a long way to go to have the patience that you will for me, but I would hope that I could at least display some of what you have built in me, at least in regards to patience. I ask this, as always, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy Spirit. Amen.
