Patience is today’s empowering word! What truth can be found in embracing Patience? The Perfection of the Work!
Patience as defined in the Wiki, (reprint):
Patience, (or forbearing) is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on annoyance/anger in a negative way; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. Patience is the level of endurance one can take before negativity. It is also used to refer to the character trait of being steadfast.
The Holy Book says the following about Patience:
But let patience have her perfect work, that you may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing. KJV
Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. NIV
Merriam-Webster defines Perseverance:
Perseverance: continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition : the action or condition or an instance of persevering: steadfastness
Patience is allowing the process to be perfectly completed without interruption from our own thoughts, actions or deeds. It is connecting to the Universal All in the knowing that all perfection is Divinely ordered.
When we rush a situation, or have anxiety and fear, we generate an adverse reaction that keeps us bond to a particular outcome in a particular timing, which immediately aborts the developing process. Then we wonder why it is taking so long. Well, it takes so long because the creative process has been aborted, interrupted or delayed because we have taken over to control the process to force it to happen in our own timing taking the Universe out of the equation.
Everything develops in its own due process. We cannot give birth to a baby until it has gone through the full gestation period. This is the perfection of the process. We must have patience while we keep watch for the timing to receive.
Patience and Perseverance are twins. We must give the necessary diligence to the process to cultivate it, but we cannot force it to develop faster than its gestation period. When the seed is planted we must allow it the time to germinate and grow before we can reap the harvest. We do this through patience.
The blessing of reaping a harvest comes from the patience to cultivate it and allow it to grow after we plant the seed. We cannot force anything to happen in a timing that is contrary to the process it must develop through. It must develop through its own Divine perfection before we can see it manifest.
This is why patience must have HER perfect work. She will produce for you ALL that you desire once you relax and allow HER to gestate through the natural process. Why HER? Why is patience female? Because patience allows and simultaneously is the process of production as it gives and brings forth. In this giving forth you will be blessed with all that you desire in your experience. SHE, Patience, will provide you with every need met so that you will be perfect, mature, and complete and have lack of no thing.
Metaphysically we come to understand perfection:
According to Ernest Holmes – Perfection is the REAL STATE of BEING; complete so that nothing is wanting. Ideal faultlessness; the divine attribute of complete excellence.
When we see perfection in all circumstance regardless of the circumstances we are KNOWING through patience that all is in perfect harmony always with the Divine whole and will manifest this perfection in Divine right order and Divine timing.
While we are maturing in patience, we are developing, nurturing, growing and promoting Divine Order in its perfect process. It is the perfect order of all that exist in the Universe that brings about all our good as we patiently persevere in our truth towards the demonstration of our desires and needs.
We cannot change the process, but we can and in most cases do interrupt and abort it through our fears and anxiety for a quick outcome or resolution. This continually forces the process to start over from the beginning perpetually delaying our demonstration.
Know that you were born the perfection of the Universe and that through your patience you activate the Universal Process. Live your Power fully and demonstrate all your dreams by exercising patience.
