God is Good. His plan is for our good and never our harm. Every joyful moment, every painful moment, every mistake and every success are all part of His greater plan to make us more like Jesus.
Hurting is not fun. But just as a child has growing pains, our emotional pain is an instrument of growth. I’ve spent far too much of my life stuck in the hurting and not allowing myself to grow. Years of inner torment and insecurity because I was afraid to grow.
Today I welcome growth, I crave emotional growth and Spiritual growth. The Lord has helped me step fully on the path that He has for my life. Not the path of the world but the path of blessing and wholeness.
As you go through your day today, rest in the blessings around you, look to the Lord for direction and peace, and don’t wait to grow. Every moment is an opportunity.
Psalms 92:12-13 The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God.
Colossians 1:10 That you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.
