Some desires require a real investment of ourselves. People often wonder if working a long time for something they desire is worth it. As stated by Paul in Romans 8:24-25:
24 We were saved, and we have this hope. If we see what we are waiting for, that is not really hope. People do not hope for something they already have.
25 But we are hoping for something we do not have yet, and we are waiting for it patiently.
Hope means more than a vague wish that something will happen. It is a sure and confident expectation in God’s future faithfulness and presence. The horizon of Christian hope extends beyond death into an eternity prepared by God himself, the reality of which is guaranteed by Jesus Christ.
The point is we need to be patient with the process and trust the fact that God knows what and how to provide ^DG
