Maturing in the Walk
Posted at 11:30 pm , on September 6, 2018
Trials are part of life, everyone will be tested. The right thing to do may be difficult and painful, but it will be more rewarding than an easy life. James 1:2-4 beautifully explains the purpose of conflict.
One thing I wish people knew about Christians is we aren’t nice out of weakness. We have been tested and built to win at life. Maturing in our walk with Christ, allows us to see people’s flaws and love them with empathy. “Hey I’ve been there I can show you there is light at the end of your circumstances.”
Another important thing about having a mature spirit is being able to have faith in the future. Every now and then, I look at the past and think about all of the trials I’ve faced. When I look at how things ended up, I know that God has provided a solution to every problem. There is no room for doubt. The creator blesses everyone that trust in his plans for our life.
Look at hardships as a way to blossom into the beautiful person you were called to be.
2 Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials,
3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.
4 But endurance must do its complete work, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing.
