Being Patient Rather then not waiting for what lies ahead

You've probably heard the saying: patience is a virtue so just wait. 
Time is precious in God's sight and it is up to us if we waste it.
The blog post above has to deal with patience and I say that because patience is important if you want a long life here on earth. 
Proverbs 19:11 NIV
[11] A person's wisdom yields patience; it is to one's glory to overlook an offense.
Proverbs 25:15 NIV
[15] Through patience a ruler can be persuaded, and a gentle tongue can break a bone.
Ecclesiastes 7:8 NIV
[8] The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride.
Isaiah 7:13 NIV
[13] Then Isaiah said, “Hear now, you house of David! Is it not enough to try the patience of humans? Will you try the patience of my God also?
Romans 2:4 NIV
[4] Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God's kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?
Romans 9:22 NIV
[22] What if God, although choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath---prepared for destruction?
Colossians 3:12 NIV
[12] Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
2 Peter 3:15 NIV
[15] Bear in mind that our Lord's patience means salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him.

Wow! What an incomprehensible indestructible God we serve! 

I hope that encourages you to be patient as you go about your day.
