Hoping for Success is Success

I can still hear my father, whenever anyone set out to achieve something difficult.

If you want to be successful in life,

throw away your watch,

and throw away your calendar

In other words, reaching goals does not mean there needs to be a joy-loss if they take longer than expected to obtain.

And, things worth fighting for are also worth waiting for.

Recently, a post card, originally sent in 1943 was delivered to its intended street address–seven decades late.

But it still got there.

That’s a successful transaction for the U.S. Post Office.

All too often we look at God as our personal Fed-X man.

He’s anything but.

His infinite wisdom is well aware of our needs.

Delays, whether we agree or not, are impeccably timed…in His Providence and Perfect Will.

Don’t give up…success never needs to be measured by time…only by hope.
