When I was a child literally I would walk into walls, earning the name “jinks.”
The fact that any of us walk is somewhat amazing, because it is one of the most difficult things for us to learn, yet we walk. Crawling, then from walker to walking.
If you are around a little one, you see that look of glee when they realize they have done it!
Learning to walk is just like all of the growth experiences we have. Growing means change. You balance a few times, but you get back up because the alternative is to stay the same. And staying the same disables the spirit and the body. So, you wobble, unsure of yourself, because at any moment you could fail. And then, you may wonder what people think…Some are watching to see if you will succeed. Others may be sent to help you. Nevertheless, this is your journey of discovery.
This is growth. We grow in vulnerability. And change makes us vulnerable. Whether it’s changing jobs, cities, lifestyles, life partners, change you must. Growth may be frightening, but staying the same is much more damaging to the human spirit.
It’s about the journey and not the destination and there are way more journeys in life than destinations. Enjoy your process. If you are struggling trying to grow, ask God for help. He is the ultimate Helper.
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; John 14:16
