Dreamers, be patient. This can be tough when your future appears so much brighter than your present, but hear me out. Greatness takes preparation. Think of your favorite meal made by your mother or grandmother. It may be that amazing baked lasagna or the sweet potato pie she bakes to perfection.
I’m almost certain that her trademark dish wasn’t made within a few minutes in a microwave. It took time. When she first learned the recipe she had to figure out just the right amount of salt and the right amount of pepper. Then she had to determine the right temperature at which to heat the cooking oil or set the oven. She might have thought she got it right the first time, but you know what? It could have been burnt to a crisp. That dish you eat at family gatherings wasn’t perfected overnight.
What I’m trying to get at, is that just like your mother or grandmother, you’re learning too. Understand that success that comes in a hurry, flees in a hurry. Right now you’re in training for what’s to come, something more substantial than overnight success. You’re figuring out the right amount of hard work and dedication it takes to get from where you are to where you want to be. The first time you try you may not get it right, but this doesn’t mean your dream is a failure. Like a recipe, take note of what works and what doesn’t. This time may seem like an eternity to live out, but when you look back, it’ll appear like a hot second.
Our timing is convenient for us, but God’s timing is perfect.
