Welcome friends to another week. Have you ever lost something? This blog is not the blog I originally wrote; however, God gave me another subject. Isn’t God good? He always supplies our needs when we think not. Sometimes we are at the lowest point of our lives, and everything held dear disappears; then, we doubt life and God. How often does this scenario happen? There were many times; I thought God’s patience had run out.
Do you know who much God cares for us? His love is infinite. He cares about the most minute details of our lives. Did you know he even knows the number of hairs on our heads? If he knows this macrocosm information, how much more does he love us? He does not point fingers to remind us of our mess-ups. He shows how much he cares through his word and death on the cross. He shows his patience by forgiving sins.
My friends, we all lie, steal, cheat, and the list goes on. However, when we ask, he is quick to forgive once we accept his grace and mercy. There are no requirements other than admitting our fallen state, praying for forgiveness, and admitting that he is who says he is. His patience is more than we can imagine. He is not a God that does not care. God does not want anyone to die (spiritually). It is impossible to count the times he forgives us. He forgives our sins as far as the east is to west. (Psalm 103:12)
There are a least 39 verses in the Bible about God’s patience and 28 verses about East and West.
One of which says this: The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering (patient) to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9
Another verse says: But though, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth. Psalm 86:15
God desires everyone to come to the saving faith by believing in his death on the cross. Therefore, he patiently waits for us to accept him at his word with love and an abundance of patience. His mercy is slow and steady.

I have included a video that may help you walk with God. Where are you today? Could you say, without a doubt, you are going to Heaven? Please speak with a pastor or another Christian if you have any questions. I hope you have a blessed week.
