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.
Every day, I pray for a little bit more of this.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. (NIV) Romans 12:12
