SuperPower Sunday: Patience

Welcome to Superpower Sunday!

This week’s Super-Character skill is Patience:

Accepting a difficult situation from God without giving Him a deadline to remove it.

Character Bookshelf Series, Institute in Basic Youth Conflicts

“Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.”

Romans 5:3, 4

Please Share! In the comments section below, let us know what you learned and tell your success stories from the last week of practicing orderliness. Also, we’d love to read your ideas of how we might exercise patience between now and next Superpower Sunday!

😆 It is something God delights to give, but the
process isn’t usually described by me as delightful. I try to consider those trials all joy, and it is easier when I remember that the testing produces endurance / patience / steadfastnesss. But oh, how right you are… God gives generously and the process is usually ample opportunity to practice

Me too… this definition is an especially convicting one, as I’m always wanting a plan for how to move ‘through’ a challenging situation, hustling to the ‘light at the end of the tunnel’, so to speak. … without giving Him a deadline… That tells me a lot of the patience [I think] I have is insincere.
