Patience

In our Sunday PM services, I’ve been preaching on the Fruit of the Spirit.  Last night was “Patience.”  I came across this poem while preparing and thought I’d share it.  Seemed appropriate for a Monday morning!

 Let nothing disturb thee;
 Let nothing dismay thee:
 All things pass;
 God never changes.
 Patience attains
 All that it strives for.
 He who has God
 Finds he lacks nothing:
 God alone suffices.
 
                   — Teresa of Avila
