When Vision Is Frustrating

Proverbs 13:12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.

How long have you waited for God to answer a prayer?  How long are you willing to wait? 

There will be times in your life when you have waited so long for something to happen that even the thought of it is painful.  But . . . 

... the greater the wait, the greater the reward. 
When vision becomes a reality the joy of experiencing it can be overwhelming and humbling. 

... when waiting is painful.  
The process of waiting is a process of patience and faith.  People have told me for years, "I will never pay for patience."  My response is simple.  You don't have to wait for it, it's going to happen anyway. Don't focus on the pain, focus on your faith.  God hasn't forgotten you, and He isn't going to abandon you.  

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, I know that you are going to teach me patience, give me the faith to see it through.  AMEN
