Thought for today

     15 Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress.  1 Timothy 4:15 (NIV)

The journey of our discipleship in Christ is a series of progressions, there are
seasons in our lives when we feel loss, hopelessness, fatigue, restlessness,
frustration, or discontent and our emotions are screaming turn back. In these
times the Holy Spirit is slowing us down to ready us for what’s around the next
corner or curve. As much as we want to find rest and relief in an easier path,
it is not necessarily the best one for us. It’s in the difficult and
challenging times that the Lord teaches, tests, and equips us to handle the
next leg of the journey. During these seasons we have to press on and be
willing to stay on course regardless of the circumstances.  If we really want the wisdom and knowledge
that can visibly be measured in our lives, we have to be content and trust that
God is working all things out for our good.
