On faith & patience

Listen:  God - along with the temptations - also gives patience.  He never gives more than we are able to endure.  For people who love God, all things work for good. ... Pray and beseech God to give you faith and patience --- to be freed from thoughts of despair.  The Saints had the power to rebuke the enemy.  We, when we have temptations, ought to take refuge in our Christ and Panagia --- just as a little child runs to his mother. 


Patience (or forbearing) is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on annoyance/anger in a negative way; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. Patience is the level of endurance one can take before negativity. It is also used to refer to the character trait of being steadfast.  From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
