You are the miracle in process.
Everything in this existence tells us that life is a process. Things grow and mature with time. Nothing gets a free pass from the weathering process. We grow and become what we were meant to be because we were pressed through life’s sieve of experiences—good and bad.
Rarely does God bypass this transformative process. Without process, there is no becoming. Whether it’s painfully difficult situations or joyous encounters, every experience calls to our soul to become the person that our Father wrote about before creation.
Encourage yourself with this, today. As much as we would like to avoid certain troublesome times, every story is filled with ups and downs, and all are necessary to produce in you the perfect you.
Avoidance only stunts our growth. It displaces us from the necessary battles of life. But instead, when we choose to press through and come out the other side, that’s when life begins to make sense.
Believe. Keep moving. And you will see the miracle of becoming.
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” (James 1:2-4, NIV)
