Don't get discouraged.

When Habakkuk became depressed because he didn't think Godwas acting quickly enough, God had this to say: "These things I plan won'thappen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when thevision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these thingswill surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a singleday!"

A delay is not a denial from God. Remember how far you'vecome, not just how far you have to go. You are not where you want to be, butneither are you where you used to be.

God isn't finished with you, either, so keep on movingforward. Even the snail reached the ark by persevering!
