2 Thessalonians 3:5

5May the Lord a  direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.

James 5:7-11

Patience in Suffering

7Be patient, therefore, brothers,
Or  brothers and sisters; also verses 9, 10, 12, 19
until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives c  the early and the late rains.
8You also, be patient. d  Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord e  is at hand. 9Do not grumble against one another, brothers, f  so that you may not be judged; behold, g  the Judge is standing h  at the door. 10As an example of suffering and patience, brothers, take i  the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. 11Behold, we consider those blessed who remained steadfast. You have heard of j  the steadfastness of Job, and you have seen k  the purpose of the Lord, how l  the Lord is compassionate and merciful.
