Evidence of growth in you!

“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6 NASB

God is working the same lesson of learning to lean hard on Him alone in so many of us! The fire has been turned up 7 times, but we are not consumed. 

We process our "stuff" quieter. Faster. Less flailing of the arms. Less tantrums and blow-ups. We cry out to friends less frequently. Explain our details a little bit less. We have stronger faith. Enduring hope. Increasing peace. Jesus is more real to us than ever before. And it shows.

Our view of community has become more like sprinkles on life to enjoy and cherish - instead of our bread & water to live from. 

Jesus has become our sustenance and our thirst quencher. That is GOOD! 

Press on, dear sisters! For, as the pressure continues, our hope will not fail! God will finish what He began in us and in His kingdom! Praise be to God who sustains us by His Word and ministers to us by His Spirit!

Father God, thank You! Thank You for changing us. For promising to finish what You began! For bringing us hope that endures, greater faith, peace and happiness. Thank You for being our sustainer, encourager, guide, and friend. You are faithful and have loved us so deeply. Fill us to overflowing with the love of Jesus, that we may continue to love You more and share that love with those around us. In Jesus' name.
