Long-Term Goals Over Short Term Gratification
(Isaiah 30:18) Therefore the LORD longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him.
Being in it for the long haul requires one to be diligent in their pursuit, consistent with their actions, and faithful during the journey. Things, dreams, and/or people worth having, take time and effort to be won. They often come as a challenge, struggle, or a situation causing initial discomfort. When you want better, you do better… doing better isn’t easy. But it is worth it! It all depends on how badly you want it.
