God gives more grace. He gives more knowledge. He gives more experience.
At 23, my dreams seem so far away. It’s like time is going quickly by, but I’m stagnant. It almost feels like I’ve been stuck in a vortex for two years. In reality, though, I know that’s not true. God has been forming and molding my heart this whole time. I must remember that. He opens my eyes to new dimensions!
I can’t be afraid of disappointing myself or the ones around me. Instead, I have to trust my Father. Being “safe” in the world’s ways will gain me nothing. The only safe place is complete faith in my God who created me well. His renewing and refreshing carry me above the chasms of risk.
I wonder why I restrain myself? I mean, if my purpose is motion, growth and a life of love, why do I sit around all day and sleep all night? There is a well that needs awakening. The life with God is an eternal flowing fountain, inside of me! It springs up, manifesting the Kingdom of Heaven all around me.
Ultimately, Jesus is faithful. He has always been faithful to me, and He always will be. No matter how fast or slow my life seems to be moving, I know that if I’m connected to Him, everything will be okay. All good things will be added to me. Heaven will be my home, because I belong to the Maker of Heaven.
“For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.”–2 Peter 1:5-7
