"Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us."
Today was best described as 'persevering.' I sat in our probation/social workers office for eights hours--waiting for her to sign 4 documents, which I typed and printed on her computer. We knew that if I did not sit and wait, in her 6' x 6'office, we would not be ready to present our files to the lawyer on Wednesday.
The best part of the day was that the Lord allowed me to share His word with many people (inlcuding the social worker), an added bonus to pereseverance!
