Habakkuk 2: 3 (KJV)

For the vision is yet for an appointed time…though it tarry, wait for it.

I kept trying to hula hoop and kept failing.

My writing career was much the same way for many years. It took me fifteen years to get my first traditional contract. That’s right! Fifteen years! To say I was frustrated would be a bit of an understatement. I was firmly convinced God wanted me to be a writer, so I didn’t understand why it wasn’t happening. I quit more times than I can remember but I always started again.

If God wanted me to do it, wouldn’t he make it easy?

Worthwhile ain’t necessarily easy or quick!

Mary was chosen by God to be the mother of Jesus. And look at all she went through—shunned; humiliated; chased out of her homeland; and watched her son die on the cross.

Worthwhile ain’t necessarily easy or quick!

God spoke to Moses. He gave him the assignment of leading the Israelites out of Egypt to the Promised Land. It took Moses more than forty years, and in the end, he didn’t get to go into the Promised Land.

Worthwhile ain’t necessarily easy or quick!

It doesn’t matter what goals or dreams you have, you’ve got to stick to it. If you quit, you won’t get there. Doesn’t matter if it’s to learn to play a piano, lose weight, be a writer, or hula hoop.

If you quit, it won’t happen.

Worthwhile ain’t necessarily easy or quick!
