Is putting up with suffering the harsh judgments of others and remaining in their presence or interacting with them.
is carrying on with faith that in the end it will all balance out to the good.
is introspection to see if you are due the treatment coming your way.
is sometimes exhausting and the reason for what seems to be an ocean of tears.
is sometimes a cement balloon…only you don’t get to put it down.
Today I feel great grief and sadness over the swamp of hatred and sickness that is the soul of the family I was born into. One day, they will face the judgments of their judgement, and while I will not revel in their suffering, I will revel in the power of the Creator who put upon them the dues coming their way.
27And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. 28And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him,who are called according to His purpose.
Endurance puts it all in the hands of the Creator and trusts.
I will practice endurance.
