In considering Bible Quotes about Gratitude I quote from Fr John Hardon, “There are three words I would like to leave with you of how we should show our gratitude to God. They are thanks-thinking, thanks-saying, and thanks-giving.”
I’m laying it all out today. I share the moment my anxiety got out of hand and how I found healing in part, through Bible quotes.
If courage is willing to take risks for Jesus Christ, let me encourage you that you don’t have to be thrown to the lions like the martyrs of old to be considered courageous. Take your all your kids grocery shopping, say “No” when everyone says “Yes” or “Yes” when everyone says “No.”
Anytime I write on Bible verses about patience-my patience gets tested! But I have a combat plan and isn’t listening to St. Paul who tells me “not to worry.” Well, it kind of is, but telling me not to worry is like telling you not to think of an apple. What did you just think about? An apple!

I desperately need these Bible verses about patience.
