Things do not always go smoothly. Sometimes life doesn’t go as we want it to. The unplanned and unexpected happen sometimes and we tend to lose hope, joy, and focus but that shouldn’t be the case. Quitting should not be an option when you are working on a short-term, long-term product, or a dream.
This blog post will talk about staying on track regardless of the challenges that come your way.
Do Not Despise Small Beginnings
Zechariah 4:10 Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand (NLT).
Starting a project can be extremely difficult and discouraging especially when you’re beginning from scratch. Beginning your journey in anything in itself is a challenge so you need to understand that things will get hard. Liken it to a building. Architects will tell you that the most important part of any building is the foundation and you need time and attention to construct a strong foundation.
The higher a building is meant to be, the deeper you need to dig when constructing its foundation. The way up is down therefore when starting anything, you need to get deeper into it before your fruits can be harvested. As you have begun your business, school project, diet, etc. always remember that it will be difficult before it becomes easy.
The fact that it is difficult at the start should let you know that it will always get easier.
