Patience allows us to go through all things with genuine joy. It teaches us to wait on the Lord and not act or react too soon. Do you have Godly patience?
You may get comfort from many sources. Alcohol, sex, smoking/vaping, or by other means. But you must know that God is the source of all GOOD comfort. So, I urge you to get your comfort from God!
Fruit of the Spirit: For others to know you are a child of God people must see God in/through you. You must live in a way that is holy [from 1 Thessalonians 4:1-12 (4)]. That does not mean you must/should wear a cross, carry Bibles, speak in tongues, or use religious words. In other words, let your fruit-bearing life show that you are a child of God. You are the light of the world, let your light [fruit-bearing life] shine! – Bishop Tim
