How Uplifting Quotes Can
Strengthen Your Faith
It is ironic that I am writing about patience quotes. I often say, “God please give me patience. And I want it right now!” Developing patience is definitely a spiritual healing goal for me.
Just like you, I want my good now because it will make my life better in some way. However, I think one of the main reasons that I have trouble with patience is there is a little part of me (okay, maybe not such a little part) which is afraid to wait. If I don’t receive what I want right now, there is a chance that I might never get it.
Does that sound like you?
That’s why patience quotes are so important. They help you remember that the good things in life don’t necessarily come quickly. Sometimes if you get what you want before the time is right, it might not be as wonderful, or even worse, it might be a disaster.
What comes to my mind is when I first met my husband. I was 22 years old. You might think of 22 as being young, but where I grew up, most women were married several years by the time they were that age. I was considered an old maid. I often felt impatient about not having found my perfect mate. (I wish I had known about quotes on patience then.) As I look back, I realize that if I had met my husband when I was younger, we probably would not have stayed together. I simply wasn’t ready to have a mature, healthy relationship.
You might not believe it, but you don’t want your good to show up before you are ready for it.
Reading and meditating on quotes about patience can help you tap into the wisdom of many enlightened teachers. These inspirational sayings can help pick up your spirits when your faith falters. They can also help you realize that when you hold a vision of good, and support it with faith, your blessings will show up when the time is right.
The following patience quotes can help you maintain your attitude of positive expectation and faith.
Spiritual Patience Quotes

It may take time, patience, listening, and decreeing to move on beyond your fears and doubts, to rise out of any valley of despair. But as you are willing to ask, to seek, to knock, as you reach higher and delve deeper, as you use all the mental, spiritual, and physical energies at your command, your efforts will be repaid richly in goodness multiplied and increased.
Patience is the companion of wisdom.

We must learn that the time of help’s coming to us is not our part, but God’s. We do know that in all the accounts in Scripture of those who realized God’s special deliverance from their troubles … this invisible power came to hand just at the right time always, never a moment too late.
Thus plant in the home atmosphere the seed of richness and abundance. It will all come to you. Use the patience, the wisdom, and the assiduity that the farmer employs in planting and cultivating, and your crop will be sure.
