Don't be despondent - God is not finished with us yet.
Philippians 1:6 - And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.
When God starts a work in us, we mustn't get discouraged if things don't happen according to our time frame - God is still going to carry on the work in our lives. We need to be patient and trust in God's perfect timing.
Tom Patterson - "Our best contribution in life can only be made as we allow God to finish his work in progress and perfect our uniqueness.”
