Faith + Patience {FREE PRINTABLE}

I was reading my pastor's wife's bible study the other morning and came across this scripture in Hebrews 6:12:

"That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises."

How encouraged I felt! It is so easy as a mother {especially a SAHM/wannabe WAHM} to get used to the drudgery, the mundane, the same ol' same ol'. Days are full of fun and laughter but also routine and the occasionally "slothful" mentality and attitude.

We must not be lazy in our faith, forgetting that we have a greater hope in the life to come. This world is not our home. God has a greater purpose; a much greater home for us. As we work, He does not forget our labor. As we minister to our husbands, children, family, church...we are not forgotten.

So hold onto the promises! What He said He will do...He will do. Those who are alert, obedient and follow the examples of believers who have left behind a legacy will be rewarded. Maybe not now, but it's coming. Hold on with patience and trust that God does not withhold ANY good thing from His children! {Psalms 84:11}
