3rd Sunday of Advent
“You too must be patient. Make you hearts firm, because the coming of the Lord is at hand.” JAMES 5:8
Patience is another one of those things many of us struggle with. We want things to go according to our plan and our schedule. Any change brings anxiety and fear. Through daily prayer we better align ourselves with God’s will and His plan, which is far better than anything we can come up with on our own.
