Growing the Friut of Patience

Colossians 1:11
His glorious power will make you patient and strong enough to endure anything, and you will be truly happy.
Patience is one of the 9 fruits of the spirit. As Christ works in our lives we learn to be more patient. Patience is not the same as doing nothing, it was waiting to do the right thing. For example, when you come to a crosswalk in a busy city there are lights that tell you when to walk and when to wait. If you decide you do not want to wait you might be seriously injured and hurt others in the process. So, focus on today and trust that God will help you with tomorrow when it gets here. Do not try and rush into tomorrow before it comes. It will get here on time, I promise. Pray and ask God to help you develop this fruit of the Spirit in your life. You will find that you and those around you will be much happier and more productive.
