God Often Changes Us Little By Little

As I continue on my wellness journey to a healthier life, I easily become frustrated at times by how little progress I seem to make.

Only when I look back over the last few years am I able to see how far I’ve come.  But then I take a long look and realize how far I still have to go.

There are so many times when I grow frustrated and cry out to the Lord to please help me.

Last month, we had a speaker and he said “God often changes us little by little”. 

How are you changing?

This really made me think.  I see all the ways he’s changed me little by little, not only in my wellness journey but in other life issues also.  There are some believers who have the testimony of how the Lord healed them or changed them all at once.  However, the more testimonies I hear, it is often of how God changed them little by little.  The change wasn’t sudden or immediate but happened over several years or even decades.

Peter wrote “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”  {2 Peter 3:9}

The next time we grow frustrated at how slow the process is, let’s remember the Lord is patient with us and changing us little by little.

How is the Lord changing you little by little?
