Trust and Patience
I thought this was interesting. I was talking to priest for some spiritual direction and mentioned that I was having trouble being patient with God, that I didn't like to wait. He took my impatience and turned me back to the trust issue (without my mentioning my recent struggles with that). He told me that there was a paraphrase of St. Francis de Sales that he tries to remember: "If we knew everything God knows, we would will everything to be the way that it is."
I guess waiting patiently is all a part of trusting Him, too.
