Getting good news is great. Especially when it's good news about something you've been working on for a while. Getting good news about something that has presented obstacle after obstacle is even better.
My father says that anything worth doing is not going to be easy. If it were, everyone would be doing it. God, the father, says that He has a wonderful plan for the life of His children but we must be faithful and walk the path He has laid before us. God opens door and brings you to opportunities. The devil will try everything he can to discourage you from walking the path God laid before you because he sees the great things God has in store for you. If the devil shuts a door, God will open a window. It's your job to keep your eyes open for alternative routes and don't shut down when things don't go as smoothly as you would like for them to when you are trying to accomplish something.
Most importantly, ask God if you're headed in the right direction. Sometimes the road blocks are signs that you're going the wrong way.
