wanting to give up, but trying to hold on.

"The Lord may not answer our prayers right away, but He will always answer them on time."

"Patience means active waiting and enduring. It means staying with something and doing all that we can -- working, hoping, and exercising fatih; bearing hardship with fortitude, even when the desires of our hearts are delayed. Patience is not simply enduring; it is enduring well!"

"Obey spiritual promptings without delay...When I have any doubt about what seems to be inspiration, I ask the Lord to sweep away my own biases and to reaffirm His will in my heart and in my mind."

These quotes and this talk are what I am clinging to right now as I try to have faith in the Lord's timetable rather than my own.

Have faith and hang in there. You are in my thoughts.
