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!
