Persevere through difficult times. When your patience starts to thin and you find yourself at the beginning stages of discouragement , keep going. Things may appear like they will never happen;you may even feel your time may never arrive, but be encouraged! Push forward knowing that you are right at your breakthrough. It’s only a test of your faith. God heard you, He did. Loud and clear. So open you eyes, clear your throat, and tell yourself, “My time is here! I am at my arrival date!” Sustain yourself in peace and hope. Keep your mouth fenced and your mind guarded from negativity. Interrupt your negative thoughts and say something positive
. Galatians 6:9 says that we should not be weary because in due season we shall reap if we faint not.
It’s not always about your readiness, but sometimes it’s the people around you who need to get in position, or may even out of the way. So get ready and steadfast in love and kindness and cast bitterness and discouragement aside for your time is here and now! God is a faithful God and His word will never return void.
