Why rush when true strength and wisdom come to those who can endure through any situation. It comes to those who can endure even the worst of times with a faithful spirit and positive outlook on life. Too many of us are looking for the microwave blessings. We want it now and fast without all the extra preparation it takes to make a well cooked meal. We bypass crucial planning and knowledge that would be beneficial to us in the long run. We need to develop patience for the oven blessings. Those are the blessings that come with time, care, patience and preparation. Very much like how it is when our loved ones prepare a feast for us. We can always tell it was made well because it was made with love. Someone took the time to make sure that every ingredient was mixed together well and placed in the oven to bake for the right amount of time in order for it to come out just right. It is never under-cooked. When we rush anything in life, it doesn’t come out as well as if we took the time to learn more and develop ourselves. In this instance we are under-cooked and not suitable for the great things trying to come our way. Taking the time to invest in yourself spiritually, mentally, physically and professionally will help you to handle all the doors that God will open for you once He sees that you are ready. You can’t get upset because things are not going the way you want right now. There is a good possibility that those doors continue to remain closed because God has not finished equipping you with what you need to maintain the blessings He is about to give.
Take life one day at a time. Focus on what you need to do to make yourself a better person today and that will prepare you for what life may bring tomorrow. Treasure every moment because once it is gone you can never get it back. Understand that although you may be going through the fire, you will come out as gold. To whom much is given, much is required. If you are not willing to take the necessary steps in order to develop the skills you need that will take you to that next level, then don’t be surprised that it feels as though life is passing you by. God helps those who help themselves. If you want to get to that next level of success in your life, than you have to give Him something to work with. You must crawl before you walk and walk before you run.
Grind hard, stay humble and God will take care of the rest. All good things come to those who wait. While you wait work on you; prepare yourself for the doors of opportunities that will open. Once they open you will be ready to receive what is on the other side no matter how big or small.
