Christian patience dating
Stormie Omartian goes on to write: “Paul makes it clear that not only are we supposed to desire patience, we’re to pursue it.
As Cindy and I have struggled A LOT in this area in our 40 years of marriage and as I look back and reflect on it now, I realize that we have grown and improved considerably —though we haven’t “arrived” yet, for sure.

“Patience means expressing the positive when you want to point out the negative.
For example, my friend can pray for his wife who’s always late and ask God how he can help her be on time. Prayer sets something in motion, even your spouse —though that may not seem immediately detectable.” Stormie goes on to write other ways to pursue patience.
These include making “a mental adjustment,” being “thankful,” keeping “quiet,” when it would be best, and “don’t give up.” Perhaps you could even post a comment below this article to encourage others in this area of marriage.
