    Out of the book Purpose driven life..

    As you grow to spirritual maturity,there are several ways to cooperate with God in the process.
    Believe God is working in youre life even when you dont feel it.Spirritual Growth is somethimes tediuos work,one smal step at a time. Expect gradual improvement.The bibel say,s "'everything on earth has its own time and own season"'There are seasons in youre spirritual life too.Somethimes you will have a short,intense burst of growth (springtime) followed by a period of stabilizing and testing 9falland winter)
    What about those problems,habits,and hurts you would like miraculously removed?its fine to pray for a miracle ,but dont be dissapointed if the answer comes trhough a gradual change.Over time,a slow,steady stream of water will erode the hardest rock and turn giant boulders into pebbles.Over time a little sprout can turn into a giant redwood tree towering 350 feet tall.

    Keep a notebook or journal of lessons learned .This is not a diary of events ,but a record of what you arelearning.Write down the insights and life lessons God teaches you about hhim.about yourself about life,relationships,and everything else.record these so you can review and remember them and pass them on to the next generation. The reason we must relearn lessons is that we forget them.Revieuwing youre spirritual journal reguraly can spare you a lot of unneccesary pain and heartache.

    The bible says,
    ""Its crucial that we keep a firm grip on what we,ve heard so that we dont drift off"'

    I do believe it's crucial to keep that firm grip, for drifting off is so easy to do in this world of sin. This is why all faithful must continue to encourage one another, so that no member of the Body of the Son feels weakened by temptation or cut off from the life that He has granted by His sacrifice.

    So long as we are here for each other in love, we can rest assured that He will be here in our midst with love and mercy and compassion.

    And we shall gain all which is promised to us, such as life eternal, even as the Son has it after His resurrection from the dead. Just keep faith strong in the Father and the Son, and believe though you might not have seen, for in this, you are blessed!
