Girth Growth…

IMG_2356Does God ever ask you something, but you have absolutely no idea what He means by what He says?… He just flat out says, “I want you to do this, this and that…” And then you’re left thinking, “Great, this, this and that sound lovely… but what do they mean?”…

Well that’s exactly where I find myself in this moment… Trusting, yet again, in what I don’t know, what I don’t understand, and what I don’t know how to apply…

And, in the midst… Well I feel a constant change… A constant, steady shift inside of me…

And there’s something about change… Growth… The desire for increase…

Sure, we all want more… But are we patient enough to wait as the growth takes place inside of us?…

For so many years I’ve looked at growth incorrectly… I’ve thought, “Gosh, it’s time to learn how to trust myself and God again?… I thought I knew how to do that pretty well!”…

Now, I’m learning that both are true… Yes, it is time to learn how to trust myself and Him again… But it’s not like the trust I had before is gone… It’s just expanding in size…

Because, when I think of growth… I think of the girth, or circumference of a tree… At one time, every tree allowed us to place both of our hands around it… Because it’s girth was small, and the tree had not come close to growing to it’s full potential…

But as time went by, the girth of the tree began to get wider… And soon we aren’t able to hug it with both arms touching one another…

To me… That’s spiritual growth…

Yes, it takes a lot of patient nurturing… But I am growing…
