I choose growth.

Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]. (Romans 12:2 AMP)

If we want to know God's will, if we want to be remade into His image, we must be teachable, and we must let Him be our teacher.

There is no such thing as spiritual homeostasis. We are either increasing in light and knowledge, or we are decreasing in them. Either growing into the new life Jesus brings us, or withering into our own mortal stature and wisdom. 

I choose His teaching, His tutelage, His blessing, His image. 

Father God, I love You. Jesus, I love You. I don't know how I ever could have made it the last couple of years without Your comfort, Your presence, Your healing, Your power, Your teaching, Your leading, Your miracles. Thank You for showing me who You truly ARE. That is a treasure worth any price. Keep teaching me, God. I will learn. In Jesus' name. Amen.

I welcome questions and concerns--they are most often what spur us closer to the truth. I only ask that we all give everyone the most generous benefit of the doubt, assigning the best motives possible. A soft answer truly does turn away wrath, and an atmosphere of Jesus's love is the best for learning, no matter which side of a discussion you're on.

Thanks so much, and God bless you!
