Luke 21:19 – In your patience possess ye your souls. Patience is one of the characteristics of the fruit of the spirit, but how can we get it?  I know of only one way, handling tribulation in a godly manner.  Tribulation or trouble teaches disciples of Christ how to deal with the issues of life […]
