Sometimes, I Forget I’m An Adult…

It’s true. I sit here in my apartment writing a speech for class tomorrow, and I start looking at old pictures. It seems crazy that 10 years ago I was 9 years old. 9! Wow, that seems so so young. Well, so does 19 if I’m being honest. But here’ s the thing: time flies. Today was spent cleaning, doing laundry, grocery shopping, and did I mention laundry? Last time I checked, those are all adult things. If I was still a 19 year old running around with pigtails and in the 4th grade, there would be a problem.

See, we have to grow up. We’re not all at the same pace, but growing up does take place.

It’s the same thing spiritually. There is the naive/young stage of one’s spiritual walk, but also there has to be a time of growing up. And honestly, it never stops. Our spiritual growth never comes to a moment where we understand and grasp anything and we literally have nothing else to learn. That never happens to us on earth. Sometimes I feel like I’m in the middle of a spiritual growth spurt, and other times I feel like I’m wondering if I’m still growing. Being stagnant is a dangerous place to be in life.

This is the verse I am currently memorizing – it’s key for spiritual growth!

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Romans 12:2
