I have learned that the greatest power is hidden in patience. I see that patience always leads to victory, although not immediately; but that victory will become manifest after many years. Patience is linked to meekness. – St. Faustina, Divine Mercy in My Soul 1514
There is power in patience. Without patience, we lose so many things that could have been ours. We fail to reach so many dreams. We fall short of accomplishing our heart’s deepest desires.
It is patience that helps us not to settle for lesser things. It is patience that helps us decide in choosing the wiser path. Without it, we choose things that can’t really make us happy. We regret being lost and we lose more time trying to make things right again.
When we wait, we show how strong our faith really is. We also prove the depths of our love.
When we wait, we allow God to work in His own time. The seeds grow. The flowers blossom. And the trees bear fruits full of sweetness and of love.
But the time is coming quickly, and what I show you will come true. It may seem slow in coming, but wait for it; it will certainly take place, and it will not be delayed. – Habakkuk 2:3, GNT
