I’m in the middle of what I’d like to call “the process.” It started this summer, as I began to learn more, experience growth, and get back to pursuing God with my whole heart.
As I prepared for this summer, I made a commitment to myself that I would get back to what made me happy and whole- my faith. And I pursued that. And as I pursued that, and continue to pursue it, I have been amazed at what God has shown me and how He works.
The process- is one of growth, purity, sanctification, and holiness. It’s about faith and transparency; learning how to be different while operating in a world that desires your conformity.
The process is pushing me further away from religion, but deeper into my relationship with God where love, grace, and mercy are overflowing.
More than anything, this process has me convinced in the power of Psalms 37:4, Romans 8:28, Jeremiah 29:11, and 1 Corinthians 2:9. Delighting myself in Him has given me the desires of my heart. Yes, ALL things work together for the good of those that love Him and are called according to His purpose. He does indeed have plans to prosper me; to give me a hope and a future. And on top of that, no one has seen, heard, or imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him.
The process is not easy. It’s easily one of the most difficult things that I’ve done. But it’s worth it.
Peace and blessings…
