Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See [how] the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door! My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering and patience. Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end [intended by] the Lord -- that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful. James 5.7-11

To endure: "to hold out against; sustain without impairment or yielding; undergo"

I will endure.

Don't know what you are going through, but rest assured, I am praying for you. Now I can be a little more specific in those prayers. Lifting up your strength and patience so that you can endure & reap the blessings that will come. Nothing every happens in MY time. Always earlier than I want or a year after! You can walk through anything and endure. God has promised that in so many verses. It's not always so easy to remember that when we feel alone in our battle. I know we don't know each other IRL, but don't doubt for a minute that your community of virtual peeps doesn't feel your pain. Stay the course.
