The Wind of Change
Do you ever get discouraged when you expect change and it doesn't happen?
When you set your heart on it, expect it, the big event and all will be well?
When your resources to deal with things are low and our prayer is, "if only God would step in and change things".....and it still doesn't happen.
we forget that God is not a God of the quick fix but of depth and integrity. God wants to bring change to our lives but change that has real growth and maturity inextricably woven through it.Its those subtle changes that take us from one degree of change to another. Sometimes we miss the change we seek and hope for. We look and expect for the whole thing to change in one go. Its those subtle changes ,the ones that are almost too small to see that can make all the difference. When its almost impossible to see what He is doing and we have to trust His word. We are so intently looking at the destination that we forget to notice and enjoy the journey which will shower us with insight to His wisdom that it defies belief.
Although God Himself does not change He brings about change through growth and with it stability like the stem of a flower that resists the buffering of the wind and grows stronger everyday.
I would encourage you then to enjoy the "JOURNEY" of growth and be patient to arrive at you destination so as not to miss the beautiful subtle changes that His Spirit births in us and cause praise and worship to Him who is worthy.
