What is your eventual destination? I know you are thinking heaven right? But I was thinking along the lines of maturity when I asked that question. How mature are you? Now I am not talking age here. Let's think about our spiritual maturity. Since I have been thinking about time recently, this was a somewhat to me anyway natural progression. First of all, just as in our physical maturity our spiritual one has no shortcuts. It takes time for Christ to mature us. Ever wish when you were saved that He just zapped you and viola! you were completely mature in Him? I guess we have all felt that way at some time or other. But honestly, I don't think any of us could stand up to the amount of changes He would have had to make in each of us. I know I couldn't. I struggle with those changes sometimes when He deals with them one by one. Do any of you struggle? Probably not lol. I am sure that it is just me.

Eph 4:13 says, Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.

See it takes time. And we will never be perfect till we are with Christ, so it is a never ending change that must take place. And just as it takes a long time to age from a newborn to old age, we must be patient along the way. We can't rush it no matter how much sometimes we wish we could.

Remember the scripture yesterday? Phil 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.

I am holding fast to that scripture as I go through the many changes Christ still has to make in me.

Today I am finishing up the spring cleaning in the kitchen, doing laundry, starting with spring cleaning in another room, haven't decided which yet. Also I will either knit or quilt a little during rest breaks.

Supper will be a nice stuffed beef roast that I will cook in the oven tonight with potatoes and carrots, and a little rice for my cajun hubby and son lol.

Praying your day is blessed!

Sometimes I wonder about myself! LOL! I can act like a spoiled child at times. On the other hand... the way we Christians sometimes behave makes you wonder! I received the gift of salvation in 1983 and sometimes I feel like such a babe in Christ in so many areas. But as you said... it takes time. And I am grateful for that because I need all the time I can get! LOL! Great post! LOVE the way you write! God Bless!
