Patience In Suffering James 1:17 17 ...... E very good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 5:7 Patience in Suffering 7.........Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord's coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains. We do not know when the Lord will return to reward His faithful people and to set right the world , but we know that He will. His promise gives us hope----- but we must remain patient until He fulfills it.
