Growing in God
Life is not an arbitrary series of random events. Nor is always set in stone. By God giving us the freedom to choose, we are able to make our own decisions. Sometimes that “gift” allows us to make emotionally un-sound decisions that send us in a circle.
“Take pains with these things; be absorbed in them, so that your progress will be evident to all.” 1 Timothy 4:15
By taking the time to further our relationship with God and by really thinking about the purpose of some of the things we experience, we really allow ourselves to grow. We allow ourselves to focus on the lesson, not the method of teaching and learn the lesson that God is teaching. Everyday life will teach you something. Everyday you will be presented with a chance for growth and if you recognize those chances you can capitalize on them.
“Do your best to prove your faith. You can do this by adding goodness, understanding, 6self-control, patience, devotion to God, 7concern for others, and love. 8If you keep growing in this way, it will show that what you know about our Lord Jesus Christ has made your lives useful
and meaningful.” 2 Peter 1:5-8
