Sometimes we want things so badly that we forget that it may not be in our best interest to have them. This can be difficult to understand in that moment but with some time, whether its a month or a year or ten years, you come to understand that what happened was meant to happened and it happened for your best interest.
I believe that God has a plan for everyone and knows best. He sees things we fail to see and is looking out for us. If you do not end up getting what you want when you want it, it is always best to stand back and pray that you get what is in your best interest and not necessarily what will satisfy your immediate need.
Never be disappointed with the lack of immediate gratification. Work your hardest at what you want but still keep in mind that as human beings some things are out of our hands… probably for good reason. We just fail to see that in the moment.
