It's often necessary & long-range beneficial, but rarely do we meet road construction with optimism; instead, frequently, we bemoan it as that which makes our commutes grow longer and our patience grow shorter.  But, even in the fume of frustration & the bane of construction, we can look forward to recognize (and give thanks for) the down-the-to-be-built-road blessings & benefits.

We'd acknowledge the construction illustration applies to other aspects of our lives, too.  Relationally.  Occupationally.  Emotionally. Even/especially . . . spiritually.  And how important it is for us to realize that, as our Savior's return draws close, he still constructs our hearts through his Word of Peace.  How important it is then for us to live and give thanks for life in his construction.
