she is still, quiet, and patient. to at least she tries to be! Again, she is not perfect, but she does strive to be like Jesus.
one of the qualities i admire most about her is the ability to be still.
we live in such a fast paced world that it looks lazy to be still. often we find ourselves feeling selfish for taking time to sit and just be. when we dig into God’s word he actual tells us over and over to be still.
Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes. Stop being angry! Turn from your rage! Do not lose your temper—it only leads to harm. For the wicked will be destroyed, but those who trust in the Lord will possess the land.
I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry.
But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
1 Corinthians 13:4–8a
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.
Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near.
