From Jesus
The reason souls lose patience in any situation is they have not sufficiently died to self. This fault lets them view things only in the way it affects themselves. The soul then loses sight of any eternal value of suffering. Every soul falls victim to this fault at times, but serious effort should be made to recognize this selfish love. It is the same spirit that puts war in hearts and so in the world. True, holy perseverance comes from placing self last, and God’s Will first. Pray to be strong spiritually and leave all other factors to Me.”
