One of the lessons I have learned in six and a half decades of life is that very few good dreams should go on hold while you improve the shortcomings of your life. To be sure, the shortcomings should be opposed with Jesus’s help in the power of his Word. The life of faith is war till our last breath (2 Tim. 4:7). To be sure, there are times you need to stop what you are doing and focus on conquering a flaw. But if you wait until all your shortcomings are remedied, your dreams will die. All our advances are with a limp. 

– John Piper, Bloodlines, 109
