Do we ever waste time wanting to be something we aren’t?
1 Thessalonians 5:24 (NASB)
Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.
Habakkuk 2:3 (HCSB)
3 For the vision is yet for the appointed time; it testifies about the end and will not lie. Though it delays, wait for it, since it will certainly come and not be late.
I.Do we ever waste time wishing or wanting to be somewhere or someone we are not?

5 From the time that he made him overseer in his house and over all that he had, the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; the blessing of the Lord was on all that he had, in house and field. 6 So he left all that he had in Joseph’s charge, and because of him he had no concern about anything but the food he ate.
Genesis 39:22:23 (ESV)
22 And the keeper of the prison put Joseph in charge of all the prisoners who were in the prison. Whatever was done there, he was the one who did it.
23 The keeper of the prison paid no attention to anything that was in Joseph’s charge, because the Lord was with him. And whatever he did, the Lord made it succeed.
