Wisdom for Wednesday - Growth

Hi there! I hope you're staying warm wherever you are. :-)
I'm glad you're joining us for...
 




This quote seems fitting for this time of year...reflecting on last year...thinking of the new year...
 
For me, the Lord brings to mind some questions (sometimes difficult to honestly answer):
 
Am I closer to Him now than I was at this time last year?
Have I grown spiritually or am I standing still?
Have I been obedient to all He has asked of me?
In what areas is He prompting me to grow?
 
There is one thing I know (and it would seem Charles Spurgeon knew as well) for certain in the area of spiritual growth. I must be moving forward on my Christian walk, ever closer to my Lord and Savior. If I'm not, I begin to "drift" away from Him and that is not what I want for my life. That's why it is important for me to honestly evaluate my growth (or lack of) and surrender to what the Lord asks of me. There may be growing pains...but they will be for my good. I can trust that!
 
How 'bout you?
Are you moving forward?
Standing still?
Be careful not to drift!
