Patience is faith being tested and tried

He who waits for the Lord, will appear to the impatient person to be doing nothing, yet he is doing the most difficult task of all, waiting and having patience.

Patience is faith being tested and tried.

The trial of faith is the key to glory, a victory that never can be won without patience.

When the wind is blowing and the sails of a ship at sea are full everyone on the ship finds it easy to rejoice.

But when the doldrums come all the sailors will have sad faces except for the most seasoned veteran of the sea.

Brethren, we must be willing to endure the suffering to gain the victory and without the virtue of patience true victory can never be won.

An impatient person is easily discouraged; a patience man abounds with hope.
