Isn’t that the way it is with our Lord. Or well it should be.
There is a place that I need to be. I wanna grow spiritually. I want to be a better husband, father, son, brother, uncle, cousin, preacher, minister, and Christian. That’s where I wanna be. I wanna be better. I have to put my own work into it for sure but I should also trust in the Lord to help me be better than I am in each aspect of my life. I need to trust the Lord when He gives me opportunities for growth. Sometimes we are too quick to come up with excuses to not grow and be challenged.
I need to trust the Lord for me to grow and be better.
A great reminder is found in Isaiah 55:8 – For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.
Trust in Him and He will get us where we need to be.
