"The deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray:

'Thy Will Be Done'."

~Elisabeth Elliot

2 Timothy 4

"Preach the Word;
be ready in season and out of season;
reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.
For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching,
but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves
teachers to suit their own passions,
and will turn away from listening to the truth and
wander off into myths.
As for you,
always be sober-minded,
endure suffering,
do the work of an evangelist,
fulfill your ministry."
