ROM 15:4 NLT Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled.

As much as I enjoy the modern conveniences of technology, I think it makes things difficult for us to have a proper kingdom mindset.
We have on demand, instant, same day delivery, drive thru service windows.  Don’t allow our first world conveniences to make us impatient for God’s ways.

Thank God, there are no drive-thru churches. (That I know of, i refuse to even google those keywords!)
We all have the same 24 hours in a day. It’s how we use those hours that sets us apart from others.
I wish all prayers were answered the first time we spoke them out. But, God’s wisdom and timing is perfect.
The roadmap for our lives and the promises of the future is our bible.  Those scriptures give us hope and encouragement.
God is teaching us in his wisdom about how he works.  He sees the master plan, that is way too complex to understand.  God is weaving a beautiful plan of redemption for our lives and world.
When his promises are fulfilled, it will be awesome.
I hope and believe for the answers to prayer.
I wait patiently to hear about the amazing miracles that God performs in our midst.
I let those answers to prayer encourage me to pray even more.  I ask God to take me deeper on my knees to seek out God’s promises in his word

endurance is patience concentrated1

Then our identity starts to shift to mature patient prayer warriors.  The endurance and patience that define our character give us strength to win any battle.   I encourage you to turn to the scriptures when your heart becomes anxious.  Let God teach you and give you peace to endure.

If you need prayer because you are too anxious, comment on this post.  I will pray for you
Before you enter into your busy day, take some time to proclaim the truth in your identity.
Let God’s holy word speak to you, about who you are!

Know Hope Collective: Attention
You call me here from all the things I’m chasing
You bring me to this place to lie down
You pull me from the wars I’ve been waging
And remind me there’s a table set for us

Exhale, shut my eyes and make me
Slow down and be still

Speak, you have my attention
You have my attention
You have my attention, Lord

You call us here so we could find our purpose
You bring us here, one body, to find rest
You pull us close to you, close together
So close we hear your whisper, feel your breath

Exhale, shut our eyes and make us
Slow down and be still

Speak, you have our attention
You have our attention
You have our attention, Lord

And more than I need
And more than enough
Are your words, oh God

And all that I am
All that I have are your words, oh God
