The Un-welcomed Visitor, Patience
Main Course: Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing (James 1:3-4).
Hi, my name is Patience and I'm here to fulfill my purpose.
I come at your request of a burning desire
that's why I am your crown jewel in the fire.
Where the ember's light purges you from within,
my darling love you haven't committed a sin.
My name is Patience and you are at my station.
I work the work of perfection and cause you to possess your soul,
this is where I teach you that He's really in control.
When the smell of the smoke seems to choke you,
stress, worry, anxiety, and fear,
call on me and I'll never leave or forsake you, I'm always near.
When the heat of the pressure is scorching, blazing, and melting away your hope and dreams,
Patience says, your eye has not seen and your ear hasn't heard about the good things...
You need me to run this race,
perseverance cannot go without me,
just like a shoestring to a lace.
I do not come often but when I do, you know that I am here to do an assignment,
God's perfect plan and Will is the alignment.
You see virtue comes from me, the power to excel,
healing is just the down payment to know that He can never fail.
Patience clothed in royal dignity
is a coat of many colors that represents
the many times you've triumphed by His grace,
won the victory even unknowingly.
So welcome everybody Patience, let her do her work,
she's sent by God to perfect His work in us before we return to dirt.
Everybody stand and let's give patience a hand
for helping you to overcome and enter your Promised Land...
Welcome, Patience.... Welcome!
(Sadly, for many she will remain an Un-welcomed visitor)
[ref. Luke 21:19; 1 Cor. 2:9; Heb. 12:1]
