For though you do not feel great, there is greatness within you. And though you feel you are going no where, know you are progressing along the path marked out for you. And though there seems to be delays, and there seems to be obstacles, and it seems you will never make it to your destination, trust I have everything marked out for you, and trust I’m guiding you along the way little by little, day by day.
For in many ways you lack the perspective to be able to judge. You cannot accurately see where you are, so how could you conclude you are making no progress? In many ways you do not see your rate of advancement, so you how could you feel discouraged about making no progress? For there will be delays and there will be hardships, but do not allow your heart to become troubled by these things.
For as you reach out for me, and call out to me, and allow me to give you my perspective, you will begin to see things differently. You will begin to feel differently about your present circumstances. You will being to abide in the hope I’ve given you, and be less prone to the discouragement of the day. For the present circumstances will not show you the perspective you need in order to understand. And your present circumstances will not activate the hope placed deep within you. Only by sitting with me, and listening to my counsel will you understand things from my perspective. And only by my spirit will your hope remain alive in you.
For the things of this world, and the resistance you experience would seek to shut down all the things hiding within you. All these things would do their part to delay, and even stop the greatness planted within you. For though it is there, the greatness within you is not sitting at the surface. In fact, it is hidden within you so deeply, many of you do not even know about it. Know about it or not, it is there. So trust in my in all your times of confusion, calamity, and hurt. In your times of disappointment, and seemingly never-ending delay, reach for me, and I will reach back to you.
For the greatness planted within you was given you for a purpose and a plan. And it will come about in due season. So I encourage you, be that faithful farmer who will do his part to tend to the field, and water the seeds, and remove the weeds, and protect and preserve the crops. For these Faithful Ones will reap not only a harvest, but a large bounty of their harvest, reaping over one hundred fold return for their labor. And while the labor seems difficult and painful now, as in childbirth, this labor and discomfort will quickly be forgotten at the time of delivery and maturity and reward.
