Suffer or Chasten?

O Lord, is this situation You want me to suffer, or You are chastening me for future which I cannot see, which I do not have now?

"But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. (Romans 8:25)"

"Love is patient, love is kind. (1 Corinthians 13:4)"

I am so weak, I am running out of love....I lost my patience.

"No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. (1 Corinthians 10:13)"

Dear Lord, dear Jesus, dear Holy Spirit, You say that You are faithful. Please provide me a way out so that I can stand up under it. I cannot bear too much anger, and will You not let me be tempted under more anger?

"Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. (Psalms 51:10)"

Grant me a steadfast spirit within me; to trust your love steadfastly, to pursue the vision You gave me steadfastly, to believe the words you said to me steadfastly.

"I declare to you that the LORD will build a house for you. (1 Chronicles 17:10)"

Thank Lord, in Jesus name. Amen.
