I have always been very frustrated that I was not doing great things at 23. Like I was suppose to be full of wisdom, leadership, and learning. Instead I feel like I am stuck in a place of patience and learning and not doing a “great thing” that was until I read this: “Seeing Growth as a process of letting God complete what was begun by God.” -eugene peterson
I started to realize that if I was there, if I was completed by God today, I would have nothing to look forward to in the future. If this was it, if this was the “best” I was going to be, the next 50 years of my life would be pretty unexciting. I am now okay not being who I want to be as a leader or doing things that I wish I could do. Instead I am being shaped by God to grow into who He was created me to be.
