Too often we pray to have patience, but we want it right now!
-Robert D. Hales


Continue in Patience by Dieter F. Uchtdorf

"There is an important concept here: patience is not passive resignation, nor is it failing to act because of our fears. Patience means active waiting and enduring. It means staying with something and doing all that we can—working, hoping, and exercising faith; bearing hardship with fortitude, even when the desires of our hearts are delayed. Patience is not simply enduring; it is enduring well!

Impatience, on the other hand, is a symptom of selfishness. It is a trait of the self-absorbed. It arises from the all-too-prevalent condition called “center of the universe” syndrome, which leads people to believe that the world revolves around them and that all others are just supporting cast in the grand theater of mortality in which only they have the starring role."


 2 Peter 1:6-7
And to knowledge atemperance; and to temperance bpatience; and to patience cgodliness;
 And to godliness abrotherly bkindness; and to brotherly kindness ccharity.


Patience =
Calm endurance; the ability to endure affliction, insult, or injury without complaint or retaliation.
