There is training; every one ought to train him or herself, the training of patience.
Though humans do not like the waiting period of patience, that gap between were they are and where they hope to be.
But in every one’s life, there is always where you want to be, from where you are.
The day you arrive at place you want to be, and nowhere else, you have come to the end of the road.
Patience is the ability to wait and that ability comes by grace.
There is nowhere else patience is required as much as relationship or marriage, because it has to do with another person.
If you desire a healthy relationship, you must need the pacifier called “patience”
If you are seeing a negative side of your spouse, patience is what will ensure you don’t only end up just with the negative; it ensures you also see the positive side of him.
If you know how to believe which is faith and know how to wait which is patience, then you will be success in relationship.
When you see marriage break up, two things are responsible: they had stop believing and are tired of waiting.
These two thing ensures a beautiful marriage and the lack of it cause a relationship failure.
So is true with life, if you don’t stop believing in yourself or God and can wait, you will be successful at anything.
How to develop patience
- Have hope: hope is the substance patience stands on. No one can develop the energy to wait without, having hope on what they are waiting for.
Hope is an optimistic feeling that something good will come out of something. Always be hopeful about your endeavor.
Life will never offer you beyond what you desire.

(The two most powerful words in relationship, is faith and patience; it can work a dead relationship back to life.

You cannot use faith and not use patience; you will hit the ice berg.
