Just for today, I will remember that the things I want in life may take longer to achieve than I expect.  Jacob thought his service for Rachel was going to be seven years, but it turned into fourteen years (29:15-30).  If you have a goal or dream within the bounds of what God has for you, then pursue it!  It may be disheartening at times when your goal seems so close, but then slips right through your fingers-don’t lose faith.  Continue to work towards your goal, and when you reach it, give God the glory.  Maybe it is a prayer that God hasn’t answered yet.  Keep praying, because on the timeline of eternity, your answer may be just around the corner.
