Synonyms for patience: long-suffering, resignation, forbearance
These nouns denote the capacity to endure hardship, difficulty, or inconvenience without complaint. Patience emphasizes calmness, self-control, and the willingness or ability to tolerate delay.
What is patience? What does it take? Patience takes self-control. That is something I need alot of in my life right now. So many times, we want something NOW. That is the way we are built to think. Me me me me now now now. I have to have that NOW. But, if we are patient, things work out better in the long run, and even better so if there is alot of prayer and devotion involved. Why? Because this is God's will for us in Christ Jesus. I think the hardest answer to a prayer is not when God says no, but when he says WAIT. Gaahhhhh just thinking about it makes me impatient. God has great things in store for us, but it isn't His will to give them to us until we are mature enough. Maturity is a thing that is very hard to show as well. But once we truly begin to show some maturity and dedication in our walk with the Lord, we start to get it right. We start to see things God's way. And then we get God's attention. We let him know that we are serious about something when we put alot of dedication, time, and most importantly PRAYER into something. So what does it take? Time + Devotion + Self-Control + Maturity = Patience, which ultimately ends with God giving you the desires of your heart (if the desires are right, that is).These were just some thoughts i've been having. Since I want to be a journalist someday, I like to write stuff down, as you can tell. I wish everyone a great Good Friday. Never forget what he did for you, on this day.

Well life is just great right now! My God has really come through for me! Only 25 days left of school!!!!!! Then comes summer, fun, and money!!!! And of course I get to see my alabama friends! I can't wait! Summer is so close I can smell it...we just have to make it through six more lousy weeks of school. But be encouraged! Joshua 1:9 says "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."
Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. (1Thes.5:16-18).
Be blessed by His spirit,

When worshipping, try to imagine Jesus walking among us... listening to each of us with one of those stethoscopes that doctors use that filter out all the noise and AMPLIFY the heart...BUT Jesus doesn't put his stethoscope away when the singing finishes on a Sunday or Wednsday night. He's listening to the sound of the heart at work on Tuesday morning; he's listening to the sound of the heart when we're out with our friends on a Friday night. He's listening to the heart when your in that class that lasts forever. He listens to our heart when we are alone in the stillness or loudness as you read this now. He listens to the heart constantly as we should be in constant prayer....so long after any songs you sing come to an end, the sound that continues to echo around the throne room in heaven is the sound of your heart.

Results: Which Boston Red Sox Player Are You?
You Are: Johnny Damon
You are the easy going, fun loving Red Sox fan. You take things as they come and try to have a good time. Nothing really gets you down. But when the Yankees are in town, you are willing to let your hair down and rise to the occasion. Whenever you encounter a tough situation, you ask yourself, "What Would Johnny Damon Do?"
Take the Red Sox Player Quiz!
Well isn't that odd....considering Johnny Damon used to be my boy but now he is a freaking TRAITOR!!!!!!!!!Fort Minor - Remember the Name

edit:: Ok I will try to keep this as short as possible, but it will be hard. So I have spent most of the night doing research on the JFK assassination for my english paper. I've been researching this for a few days now, and I can't come to a conclusion about his assassination. As many of us know, (or at least we should) this is one of the most famous assassinations in history because about 95% of all americans belive that the JFK assassination was a conspiracy. Most people don't belive that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the murder. The facts about the case are that Lee Harvey Oswald shot JFK from the 6th story of the Texas School Book Depository Building with a bolt-action rifle (I forget the actual name of the rife), in Dallas, Texas at a place called Dealey Plaza . The President was riding in a convertible with his wife and Texas governor Connally. There is alot of question as to how many shots were actually fired. Many people say that the Zapruder Film (which a video that shows JFK being shot) shows reactions to 6 different shots on the president. It is a fact that only 2 shots hit the president (one that went through his neck and another hitting him in the head, causing his head to explode). They say at least one of these shots came from the grassy knoll nearby (which missed kennedy and the convertible completely), and the others came from the book depository building. But officials of the Warren County Assassination Commission (which was a commission appointed by president Lyndon Johnson that came to the conclusion that kennedy was assassinated by oswald alone, and not a conspiracy) say that only 3 shots were fired at Kennedy. Looking at the evidence myself, this seems almost impossible. So I want to know what you guys think. Was JFK assassinated as a result of a conspiracy? Or was it Oswald acting alone? Please leave me your thoughts. And I am expecting to get good, educated feedback from John on this one, since he has the same research topic as me.

God has been teaching me so many things through His word lately. I want to encourage everyone to get into His word, b/c I know that many of us don't get into it at all on our own free time. But ask God to give you a thirst for His word instead. Not because you have to read it to be a good christian, but because you have a DESIRE to get to know your savior better.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. (Matthew 7:7-8)

But you are a shield around me, O Lord; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head. To the Lord I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. - Psalms 3:3-4
Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my sighing. Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray. In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. - Psalms 5:1-3
Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble? - Job 2:10

So the snow day yesterday was really awesome. A bunch of us went over to ben's house and had a snowball fight and then we went sledding down a giant snow/mud hill. Yeah, we got dirty lol. It was fun. .Then last night I went to aaron's house to spend the night with the guys. WOW it sure was fun seeing forrest, aaron, ben, and faust getting nailed with ping pong balls on the bare chest. Yeah, I am pretty sure they all have an intelligence level of about ZERO (especially forrest, since he just insisted on being whacked with ping pong balls continually b/c he kept loosing) but that's why its so hilarious. Then we played poker untill about 5 in the morning and I was really low then I made a comeback and I was winning and then I made a few bad calls and ended up coming in third place. Then I decided to drive home and sleep in my own bed instead of sleeping at aaron's house. So yeah, I got about 6 hours of sleep last night so I am really really tired right now. I have to go to a mexico meeting at church for the mission trip coming up so that should hopefully be interesting. Here is a picture of me holding Mr. Schaller's Thompson Semi-Auto Submachine Gun which was pretty awesome.
Now THAT is some gangsta stuff right therrr
