Just keep at it!

It is not easy being a well-digger in perspective and practice. Why? Because you don't hit water the moment you start digging; you have to keep at it long and deep enough until your desired end materialises. Many opt for a swift gratification of today's cravings against persevering for tomorrow's greater reward. This is one of the differences between a water-drinker and a well-digger. The former lives for himself and for today; the latter for others and for tomorrow. It may seem easier to quit well-digging in search of seemingly better, shorter or less stressful pursuits. But is there really anything as a short-cut to significance?

If you are sure you are in your assigned place, doing your assigned task; then don't yield to the temptation to quit just because things seem not to be working. Oh yes, assess and evaluate, but do so with your spirit. You can't trust your emotions when it's the part of you that is mostly feeling the heat (or reacting, I should say). Trust your spirit in times like these. Better still, trust God's Spirit within you. If He led you where you are in the first place, there's no point leading yourself to some other place. The moment water starts gushing out of your well, all your efforts would end in heartfelt satisfaction. Wisdom is always justified by her precious fruit.

Just keep at it. You will bring forth. You will generate great value in and around your life for the blessing of untold many. Your well will abide, and so will your fame in God (His fame through you).

"Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning" (Psalms 30:5)
