An Encouraging Word

Thoughts about “Patience” that makes one go hmmm….

Posted on

“One of the great disadvantages of hurry is that it takes such a long time.” G.K. Chesterton 

“I think Christians fail so often to get answers to their prayers because they do not wait long enough on God. They just drop down and say a few words, and then jump up and forget it and expect God to answer them. Such praying always reminds me of the small boy ringing his neighbor's door-bell, and then running away as fast as he can go.” E.M bounds

“We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world.Helen Keller

“If I have done the public any service, it is due to my patient thought.” Isaac Newton 

“What then are we to do about our problems? We must learn to live with them until such time as God delivers us from them. We must pray for grace to endure them without murmuring. Problems patiently endured will work for our spiritual perfecting. They harm us only when we resist them or endure them unwillingly.” A.W. Tozer

“A Christian without patience is like a soldier without arms.” Thomas Watson
