True strength gives you a greater power than the ability to move "things" about. One of the wonderful ways strength manifests itself in your consciousness is in the form of patience. Patience is calm, uncomplaining endurance. It is persistent courage. Whenever you need to be courageous in a situation, all you need to do is become still. It is a deliberate spiritual step when you still yourself toward something spiritual. Still yourself toward strength, and a quiet courage comes forth through your consciousness as patience. If you do not draw upon your source of patience you become irritable and tense and have no other choice than to react in anger and impatience. You always have the choice of waiting on your Lord rather than becoming frustrated and embittered. Draw upon strength and patience.
