How many times have you given up after a “no” or because what you were expecting was taking too long to happen? Now, how many times did it get better after giving up? Quitting after a “no,” a setback, or a lengthy waiting period doesn’t help you win or overcome; it simply prolongs your progress by halting the process. When we quit, more than likely, we either dwell on the fact that it didn’t happen or abandon that plan and start something different, leaving behind the promise we were working toward. If we don’t learn to wait or how to accept “no” we’ll find ourselves in this process more often than we’d like.
There really is a lesson in every no and waiting period. Take a second to reflect on periods of time you had to wait or situations where “no” was the answer received. Now, think about the positive results of that waiting period and/or “no.” Because we want immediate gratification, waiting seems hard and sometimes impossible. However, waiting produces benefits that immediate gratification doesn’t always offer. And though being told “no,” when it’s something we have our hearts and minds set on, might sometimes be discouraging, there is a lesson and greater opportunity in the “no’s” we receive.
Allow me to encourage you as you wait. Be reminded of the old saying, “Good things come to those that wait.” Stop rushing it or trying to make it work on your own. We will always mess it up when we tamper with God’s design. Also, allow me to remind you that every “no” is not final, and to encourage you to keep going until you hear the consecutive “yes’” you’re longing to receive. If you haven’t received it yet, know this, it is still on its way. Be diligent in your belief and maintain faith that all those things, which God has promised you, and the desires of your heart will be fulfilled. Remind yourself, after the wait, and even after a series of “no’s,” comes the promise.
While you wait, meditate on these scriptures:
Psalms 37:34 – Wait for the LORD and keep His way, and He will exalt you to inherit the land you will look on when the wicked are cut off.
Isaiah 40:31 – But they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
Lamentations 3:25 – The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him.
Psalms 37:7- Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for Him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in His way, over the man who carries out evil devices!
James 1:12 – Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love Him.

It’s a Process!
Understand this, where you are in life is exactly where you’re supposed to be. You may not arrive to your chosen destination as quickly as those around you; however, if you stay the course you will definitely “arrive.” I want to encourage you to make a commitment to yourself that beginning NOW you will no longer compare yourself to anyone or their journey. You don’t truly know their highs or lows, their support or lack thereof, and the focus, sacrifice, and dedication it took to get them where they are. One thing that’s clear is that they “arrived;” just as you will.
It’s a process. It doesn’t happen at the blink of an eye, snap of the finger, or wiggle of the nose, and it certainly doesn’t happen overnight. Your process will be different in many ways from those around you. While you might reach out for their support, don’t consume yourself with negative thinking because your process is taking a bit longer. Instead, gain everything you can from the journey so that when this process is complete you’re much more prepared for what’s to come. Because there is more for you, you know!
Trust God! Trust the process! Be encouraged! Be empowered!
