And the king was told to go and dip himself in the Jordan river seven times and he would be clean.
Persevere with patience in your prayer, and repulse the cares and doubts that arise within you.
Evagrios the Solitary
Perseverance is the sister of patience, the daughter of constancy, the friend of peace, the cementer of friendships, the bond of harmony, and the bulwark of holiness.
Bernard of Clairvaux
Patient waiting is often the highest way of doing God’s will.
Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing, but to turn it into glory.
Every evening, I turn worries over to God. He’s going to be up all night anyway.
Mary C. Crowley
May I be patient! It is so difficult to make real what one believes, and to make these trails, as they are intended, real blessings.
John Henry Newman
Patience is a fruit that cannot be picked until it is fully ripened. It will have to endure variable temperatures, wind, sun, and rain before its sweetness is accomplished within us. The result – an unshakable cheer and a bone-marrow belief that Jesus truly has overcome the world.
The great thing about growing patience is one is never at a loss for opportunities!
We always have God’s full attention. Our part is to give Him ours.
He who waits on God never waits too long!
