When we make goals, we look towards the end result, believing it will happen. But the result is not given to us at the start.
This is what faith is.
It begins with endurance and determination. It ends with stronger endurance and determination. These we gain through the journey.
God hears us, and He is watching us.
We need to keep our eyes focused on Him.
(NIV) 2 Corinthians 4:18, “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
