Growing is coming to a place of willful learning through the day in, day out encounters with God. He is always aiming to make us Better.
Sometimes however we slack and allow our contentment to become satisfaction and then we come to a downward slope in our growth. Even though life is still moving, the increase of using wisdom with every situation, decision and circumstance comes to a noticeable stop.
Some would like to ridicule and criticize those who fail, but fail to realize that humanity Fails Us. Not just in general, but on a personal and/or individual basis. Everything is not redeemable in the same way. And there are areas of our lives where we must have The Divinity taking us into DESTINY. Otherwise, a person is able to say that “he or she achieved it alone, or “on my own.” Hog Wash! Who gave you the talents, the skills and abilities, did you? Your parents? Their parents? Neither! It was God. So He alone gets the credit for things that are in working order, and He needs to be called on way before it is no longer working!
Many do not realize that they are guilty of Going and Going, but never stopping to note any sign of true growth. Growth has much to do with increasing how you are a well-rounded blessing to more and more around you. It is not about climbing a success ladder or achieving paying a mortgage off in itself, but it is about impacting lives and making a mark on the betterment of the lives of others, and not just me and my four.
Growth is not a comfortable place or a place that is simply functioning, but it is a place that pulls on your core areas and says——-“you can’t stay here, you must move to the next level.”
The family that is honest with you is the family that loves you. Sugarcoated lives have bleeding right under the surface and the need lies in God. In order for me to truly Grow, I must learn to Love. And not with the love that we start with when the kids were newborns or when marriage began, but through the issues, there was inward and outward improvement made, and through the things happenings, changes occurred. Growth that makes one expand, flex and that calls for adaptation.
Now there is a place that should harness it all or should I say person. Why? Because there is plenty that looks like love or looks needy but yet it is a time waster, therefore, one can misapply love out of lack of understanding. Love misapplied is an unfortunate norm. The heart is so unstable and switches and changes clothes, temperament and expectation 50 times an hour. So this is where humanity alone is not stable enough. Besides the fact that we don’t know what to do in many situations and try to go about doing things however we think, which is never good enough and end up creating bigger problems than we started out with.
Humanity needs Divinity. I need God. You need God. We need God. To direct this thing called life. We do not want to just have the instruments, but the melody and music which God intended that we should have and enjoy as it all comes forth in complete harmony when He is involved.
Let’s Grow as we Go!
