WORTHY THOUGHT:  Patience is waiting until later for what you want now.

“For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.”      ~Habakkuk 2:3 NIV

If you are going to really reach your goals in life, sometimes you have to delay gratification. You have to do the tough thing instead of the fun thing.” -Rick Warren 

Nothing great is ever accomplished without persistence and patience because, in order to be successful, your dreams must translate into work. The people who succeed in life are the people who are willing to do what they don’t feel like doing. They are not mastered by their moods, they are mastered by the Master, and they establish their goals and plans according to God’s will. -Rick Warren 

God is faithful and just, you can trust Him because His character never changes and His Word never fails. God is on His throne and has everything under control. We can pray and just look up and lay hold of His assurances.

The signs of a true apostle were performed among you with utmost patience, with signs and wonders and mighty works..-2 Corinthians 12:12
