#586 – Matured in Trouble

The rush to be healed causes you to miss the healing. True restoration takes time and the process should not be rushed. Let the pain do its work, let the hurt purify and let the difficulty shape your character.

Many cannot stand crisis, because they have not endured anything. Trust is matured in trouble. When I can rely on you, even in the worst of times, I can give you more to manage. How are you managing, what you have?

Each step in the healing, maturing and developing process builds on the next, bypassing a single stride compromises the outcomes. Appearing whole and being made whole are not the same, one is a veneer and the other is solid, through and through.

The difference is in your focus and your level of submission. What are you willing to endure and suffer beyond? There is no easy way, it takes what it takes. If you will tarry to the other side of this season, a joy is coming.

Psalm 30:5
For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.
