Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
To me this means that it is okay to find joy in hoping as long as I am patient in times of trouble and never quit praying.
1 Corinthian 13:4-8
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
Doesn't that verse say it all? LOVE IS PATIENT.
