The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride.
Ecclesiastes 7:8 NIV
In the beginning or even during a process, we often can't see the end results. We just have to trust God, and remind ourselves that faith is the substance of things hoped for... The evidence of things unseen (Hebrews 11:1). In the end, if we are obedient and allow God to guide us, we will reap a harvest. However, until the harvest comes, learn from the process. We all could stand a lesson that helps us grow. In the mean time, hold on to the promise and ask for guidance.
