Patience

Don't you like to get quotes from the old time preachers? This one is easy to say and read. But to put into pratice ~well, t'aint so easy. I think sometimes we just grin amd bear whatever is trying our patience. We sometimes don't even think of singing. We are kind of like the Israelites when they were in Babylon. They hung their harps on the willows and when they were ask to sing they said,"How can we sing a song in a strange land?" Seems like they were grinning and bearing it!
Are you in a strange land today? Are you laden down with a burden?
Pick up you harp and sing! Sing praises to our Lord and King. Sing the doxology. You might be surprised how much better you feel. Sing and bear it. T'is better you will feel.

Old time quotes are my favorite. When my mind is all wrinkled with worry or some other kind of burden singin to the Lord is the key for me to find relief. I often sing a prayer.
