“Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city.”
Patience and self control are not easy. Nobody likes being patient, even being patient with yourself. Being patient doesn’t come naturally to anyone. It takes effort and practice. You will not become a patient person overnight, but you will get better at being patient with your emotions. It is a matter of getting the repetitions in. God knows it is tough and He is coming alongside you in that process.
