Meditations on Patience

For everything there is a sign. The sign of love is fortitude under My decree and patience under My trials.

- Bahá’u’lláh

God has perfect timing; never early, never late. It takes a little patience and it takes a lot of faith but it’s worth the wait.

Two things define you: your patience when you have nothing and your attitude when you have everything.

I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love. 

- Ephesians 4:2


First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win...

To lose patience is to lose the battle.”

- Mahatma Gandhi

When you encounter various trials, big or small, be full of joy. They’re opportunities to learn patience.

Bahji 2017-80_2.jpg

There is nothing greater or more blessed than the Love of God! It gives healing to the sick, balm to the wounded, joy and consolation to the whole world, and through it alone can man attain Life Everlasting. The essence of all religions is the Love of God, and it is the foundation of all the sacred teachings. 

It was the Love of God that led Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, that strengthened Joseph in Egypt and gave to Moses courage and patience.


Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.

- Robert H. Schuller

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

- Philippians 4:6
