I've come to the conclusion that Survivors are patient; a trait I am continually learning. The following quote is one that I've loved for years. It helps me remember that someone has a greater vision for me than I ever could imagine for myself.
“Patience is tied very closely to faith in our Heavenly Father. Actually, when we are unduly impatient, we are suggesting that we know what is best—better than does God. Or, at least, we are asserting that our timetable is better than His. We can grow in faith only if we are willing to wait patiently for God's purposes and patterns to unfold in our lives, on His timetable.” Elder Maxwell
I love the following video and the words to this song Overcomer! This makes me so happy!
