Are you embracing the process? Anything we do worthwhile does not happen instantly or overnight. As much as we want it to in a society where we can order and get our food within minutes, and warm up food within seconds, we want things to happen right now.
But true change and true healing only take place over time. Just like coming into a relationship with anyone takes time. That includes your relationship with God. The more time you spend with Him the more you know Him and understand Him and the more intimate your relationship is with Him.
Just like it would be with any human being here on earth. I was thinking about this today and praying about it because sometimes I want things done right now. I want my business to be full time and booming and bringing in enough money, and I want my book on recovery done, but all of this takes time. I did not start my business overnight and I have not been healing overnight. It has been years and years taking little steps day by day and sometimes minute by minute.
I shared with you at the beginning of this year that God laid on my heart the word embrace. Embracing change is one of those things I’m trying hard to do, but also realizing that change is not instantaneous, especially if it’s going to last. Just like a fast weight loss program where you don’t change your daily habits or lifestyle is not going to last.
I just want to encourage you that if you’re moving forward, even if the changes seem so incredibly small to you, you’re still embracing change and making progress. You’re going to look back in two to three years and see what God has been doing in your life if you’re walking with Him and allowing Him to work in your life.
I can absolutely guarantee that as long as you truly are trusting and walking with Him. I am doing my best today to remember to embrace the changes God is bringing, but remember that as I embrace them they’re happening little by little and step by step.
To remind myself that I can’t always see with my human eyes or brain the changes that are happening right now.
However, they are happening, and trust me my friend they can happen for you too, and they will if you’re walking step by step with Jesus.
Embrace the process of healing.
