Bible Quotes on Waiting

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.

For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

God’s delays are not God’s denials.    Author: Robert H. Schuller

Faith, and hope, and patience and all the strong, beautiful, vital forces of piety are withered and dead in a prayerless life. The life of the individual believer, his personal salvation, and personal Christian graces have their being, bloom, and fruitage in prayer.    Author: E.M. Bounds

I think Christians fail so often to get answers to their prayers because they do not wait long enough on God. They just drop down and say a few words, and then jump up and forget it and expect God to answer them. Such praying always reminds me of the small boy ringing his neighbor’s door-bell, and then running away as fast as he can go.    Author: E.M. Bounds
It is hard to wait and press and pray, and hear no voice, but stay till God answers.    Author: E.M. Bounds

One of the great disadvantages of hurry is that it takes such a long time.    Author: G.K. Chesterton
It is only imperfection that complains of what is imperfect. The more perfect we are, the more gentle and quiet we become toward the defects of others.    Author: Francois Fenelon
Rebellion against your handicaps gets you nowhere. Self-pity gets you nowhere. One must have the adventurous daring to accept oneself as a bundle of possibilities and undertake the most interesting game in the world-making the most of one’s best.    Author: Harry Emerson Fosdick
I can see, and that is why I can be happy, in what you call the dark, but which to me is golden. I can see a God-made world, not a manmade world.    Author: Helen Keller
I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad. Perhaps there is just a touch of yearning at times; but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers.    Author: Helen Keller
We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world.    Author: Helen Keller
Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow.    Author: Helen Keller
