You will never regret setting standards. It's the times you compromised and settled for less than you deserved that caused you pain.
God tells you the ending of the story before it even begins. What you have to go through is just a test of your faith to see if you can HANDLE the promises he made and if you DESERVE them....
Jeremiah 29:11- For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
So if things look bad RIGHT NOW, keep the faith that there's more to come. Jeremiah 29:11 teaches us that our conflict is not our conclusion.
In order for something to reach its highest potential, it has to go through a season of maturation. Don't let your IMPATIENCE in the process make you think his promise is IMPOSSIBLE. Proving that you can be faithful with just a seed, shows God that you're able to harvest the fruit.
