Hold on to Hope, for Dear Life

For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus. Romans 15:4,5
So, are you believing for things that the Lord's promised you, that you haven't seen come to fruition yet? I sure am. Sometimes the wait is soooo long. And I feel like growing weary 😩 . But you know, God's got good timing. Time is going to pass, whether we're believing to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living or not.
I would have fainted (given up, lost all hope) if I hadn't believed I'd see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13
We might as well wait right, in faith. Good things really do come to those who wait. And, we grow/are strengthened while we wait.
They who wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength 💪 . They shall mount up with wings as eagles. They shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 
Not one of Your promises have ever failed Lord, thank You that YOU are faithful and that YOU never fail.
You know in all your hearts 💕  and in all your souls that not one word of all the good words which the Lord your God has promised concerning you has failed; all have been fulfilled for you, not one of them has failed. Joshua 23:14
Hold on to hope ... for dear life. 
Father, teach us to wait on You. Grow us up. Strengthen us. Help us not to grow weary waiting for what You've promised us to come from the spiritual realm to the natural realm. Give us hope to continue the fight in faith believing, knowing that You are a rewarder of those who diligently seek You. Forgive us for the times that we're jealous of others who are further along than us. Help us to run our own race. In Jesus' name, amen 🙏
