Complate spiritual maturity is never achieved in a day, or in a year, or even in a lifetime. The journey toward spiritual maturity is a process that continues, moment by moment and day by day, throughout every stage of life. Every chapter of life has its opportunities and its challenges, and if we're wise, we continue to seek God's guidance as each new stage unfolds. When we do so, we allow the Creator who made us to keep remaking us. and that's good. If we cease to grow, either emotionally or spiritually, we do ourselves and our loved ones a profound disservice. But if we focus our thoughts and attune our hearts to the will of God, we'll make each new day another stage in the spiritual journey... and our Guid will be walking right beside us.
We're prone to want God to cxhange our circumstances, but He wants to to change our character, We think that peace comes from the outside in, but it comes from the inside out.
I've told you these things for a purpose: that my joy might be your joy, and your joy wholly mature. John 15:11
