Real Change Takes Time

Wholeness takes time and it is God who takes you on the journey from brokenness to wholeness. He does the work.

Paul ended the letter he wrote to the Jesus followers in Thessaloniki Greece by reminding them that God will bring it all together and bring them to wholeness:  “May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together—spirit, soul, and body—and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. The One who called you is completely dependable. If he said it, he’ll do it!” 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 MSG

As you walk with Jesus, He works in God’s love, grace and truth into your life. Your job is to respond in faith and truth Him. Trust Him with the process and the process can be painful. We must trust Him, follow His lead and learn to rest in Him. Rest from trying to figure it all out. Rest from worrying yourself sick. Rest from trying to control everything and have the answers for everything.

My friend, take a deep breath, slow down. The very best thing you can do is rest in the love of Jesus with the confidence that He will make you holy and whole. He will put you together – spirit, soul and body. 

Real change takes time.

Let go of your timeline and walk with Jesus one day at a time.
