“Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat—I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how.
Luke 9:23 MSG
Just when we think we got a pretty good grasp on our inner self God introduces new frontiers. He shows us things that need healing, things that need to change. Why? Because God is growing us up!
Why is it that when we’re pushed and stretched by a coach our trainer that we’re not surprise because it’s what we’ve signed up for? God is always inviting us to come with him, stretching us, inviting us to new places, to more of him.
May we ask God today to grow us in new ways than embrace the blood sweat and tears. It will be worth it!
