Believe In The Process: God Rewards Our Efforts


Sometimes it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Our problems can seem so big that we question our capability to overcome them. We base our beliefs on what we understand, instead of basing it on the greatness of our Lord. While it may be true that we can’t do it alone, but with God all things are possible.
Reaching our goals, and accomplishing our dreams won’t happen over night. It’s a process that we must go and grow though. Quitting and doubting won’t make it happen any quicker. In fact, once we start doubting and venturing off the plan, is when we delay the process for ourselves. Have you ever went on a diet and when the numbers on the scale didn’t reflect the hard work, you ate everything in sight and jumped off the health wagon? Then come back to it a few weeks or months later, weighing even more? We all do it. 

We want instant gratification. Life, however, doesn’t always reward us immediately. Sometimes we have to work for months or even years before we reach the goal. The key is to not give up. If we keep going, putting one foot in front of the other, then we will eventually get there. It’s the constant stopping and then restarting that delays our journey. 

For the things that are truly important for us, we need to put on blinders and keep moving forward every day until we reach our goals. I know how hard it can be. Trust me I have daily thoughts about quitting. But quitting is not part of my plan. So I keep moving forward, believing that one day God will reward my efforts. 

The amazing thing about God is that He works out of our sight. While it might seem hopeless to me right now, God might be aligning it all for my benefit. We should never give up on the dreams that make us cry. God has a plan. He knows how to help us. When we feel like giving up, we just need to spend more time with him. 

Don’t ever allow anyone or anything take away your dreams. You can do it. Because God will help you. 

Love and blessings,
