Sometimes I feel stunted in my spiritual growth. I feel like I repeat the same lessons over and over. I must not have learned it right the first time. I am so thankful for God’s patience with me. In this stage of life, as a young mom, I think of myself as someone who has planted seeds, watered and cared for the seed and now I am watching the soil for signs of growth. The encouraging thing is that even if I do not see signs of growth does not mean that there isn’t growth happening under the surface. I need to keep presenting myself to God, praying to Him, asking to grow me, mold me, shape me. I need more and more of God. He must increase. I must decrease. I also hope that years from now that I will be able to look back at this season of my life, and see growth that isn’t so apparent right now in this moment I am thankful that God is not finished with me yet.
