What To Do When You Aren’t Seeing Results

One of the hardest things we encounter in life is not seeing the results we desire from the effort we put forth.
Perhaps you’ve invested time, resources, and energy into pursuing your goals and seeing your dreams become a reality. You’ve acted in faith and worked hard yet it seems like you are getting no closer to your goals.
I understand how you feel. You feel like giving up. That it’s never going to happen. That you will never accomplish the great thing in your heart.
But, you can’t give up. You must keep believing, keep moving forward, keep putting forth the effort. The fact is, if you have been consistent and persistent in your endeavors, you are one step closer to the results you are believing for than you were yesterday.
One of the truths I’ve learned in life is, the battle is always fiercest just before the victory.
You must keep believing, keep putting forth the effort, because you have what it takes to win.
If no one else encourages you to stay the course, encourage yourself.
Results are the reward for faith, effort, and determination.
Know this, you can do all things through Christ which strengthens you! (Philippians 4:13)
You may be saying, “But it’s too hard.” But, never forget if it were easy, everyone would do it.
Keep you eyes on the prize. Keep believing. Stay focused. Stay motivated. Work more diligently. Don’t give up. Anything worth having is worth fighting for.
The Bible teaches us, “Be not weary in well-doing, for in due season you will reap if you don’t give up.” (Galatians 6:9)
If you give up now, you’ll never know what you are capable of accomplishing.
Last but not least, “When you feel like giving up, remember why you started in the first place.”
