GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT
(AND TO THOSE THAT DON’T LISTEN TO THEIR FAMILY)
“Consider it pure joy my brothers whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” -James I
IN OTHER WORDS. IF YOU DO SOT HAVE ANY PROBLEMS YOU BETTER HIT YOUR KNEES AND PR.A Y TO GOD FOR HIS FORGIVENESS.
FAITH in God will produce HOPE. Hope is the life’s blood of PERSEVERANCE. Perseverance is the creator of CHARACTER. With character always comes victory. Therefore, FAITH is the very substance of Victory.
FEAR is the opposite of this. With fear you have no faith. Without faith, you have no hope. Without hope, you will not give birth to perseverance. With no perseverance, there is no character. When you lack character, you will never succeed. Therefore, FEAR is the very substance of failure.
To begin the journey of hope you must see past your problems. You’ll see a lot, but none of that matters if you do not have vision and you lose sight of what you want.
Stop looking out and start looking at. Stop looking out for problems and pot holes and start looking at all life offers and what you can offer life, God’s most precious gift.
If the sapling prays for fruit, it must wait for roots to form, sap to flow, the trunk to get thicker, branches to grow stronger, and leaves to ripen. Then when the tree is fully , formed still, when it prays for fruit, it must still wait until spring. By being forced to wait for the right time, God’s time, the tree will always bear good fruit.
POSSIBILITIES MUST BE WEIGHED,
THEN PRIORITIES MUST BE SWAYED,
THEN THE PLANS MUST BE LAYED,
AND COMMITMENTS MUST BE MADE.
THE PRICE MUST BE PAID,
THE TIMING MIGHT BE DELAYED,
BUT THE COURSE MUST BE STAYED,
AND THE TRUMPETS WILL BE PLAYED!
