And in the eleventh year, in the month of Bul, which is the eighth month, the house was finished in all its details and according to all its plans. So he was seven years in building it. (1 Kings 6:38 NKJV)
My point is, "Building anything worthwhile and sustainable takes time."
Most leaders who go into a ministry or organization and expect to see amazing things happen greatly underestimate this principle. Time is the one element that has to be in the equation of a solid ministry.
Over time most leaders feel defeated because they feel things should be happening faster. That is where my biggest source of discouragement comes. Don't lose that element, because that is what makes you a leader. The key is to continue to march toward the destination of your goals on a daily basis. Do something daily moves you toward your goals. This is where you can manage your drive and respect the "time" factor it takes in a vision.
With any project or ministry you walk I to, you have to say to yourself, "This will take much more TIME than I planned and will be much HARDER than I imagined, but the end goal will be WORTH it all."
