-Patience is far more than simply waiting for something to happen--
-Patience is not passive resignation, nor is it failing to act because of our fears
-Patience means active waiting and enduring
-Patience means staying with something and doing all that you can--working, hoping, and exercising faith; bearing hardship with fortitude, even when the desires of our hearts are delayed

*Every one of us is called to wait in our own way. We wait for answers to prayers. We wait for things which at the time may appear so right and so good to us that we can’t possibly imagine why Heavenly Father would delay the answer.

*Often we can’t see the Lord’s hand in our lives until long after trials have passed. Often the most difficult times of our lives are essential building blocks that form the foundation of our character and pave the way to future opportunity, understanding, and happiness.

*Patience means to abide in faith, knowing that sometimes it is in the waiting rather than in the receiving that we grow the most.

Story of my life the past 3 months. Do you think Heavenly Father is trying to tell me something?
haha. I think so, and I think I'm finally understanding it. Fully understanding
