“While we worry about how fast we grow, God is concerned about how strong we grow.” That sentence smacked me right in the face today when I read it. God views our life FROM and FOR eternity, so he is never in a hurry.
We definitely are. We want the quick fix, the shortcut, the on the spot solution. We want one workout, one sermon, one conference or experience that will instantly resolve all problems and release us from all growing pains. But real maturity is never the result of a single experience. Growth is gradual!
Remember how far you’ve come, not just how far you have to go. You are not where you want to be, but neither are you where you used to be. “God began doing a good work in you, and I am sure he will continue it until it is finished when Jesus Christ comes again.” Philippians 1:6
God isn’t finished with you, either, so keep on moving forward sister. Even the snail reached the ark by preserving! 👏🏼🐌🏁
