Are you going through? Or are you growing through? The thing about going through is that the destination is undetermined. You don’t know where you will end up. Growing through, however, leads to a positive outcome. Growth frequently means progress. Growing through results in enlightenment and revelation. Growing through results in a better you.
Growing through leads to a life built on Christ. Growing through leads to you looking like Christ, thinking like Christ, and speaking like Christ. Growing through makes you better, more refined, and wiser.
The issues of life will continue. In this world, we will have trouble-the Lord says so! But know that you are an overcomer! Know that you are more than a conqueror. Sister, you are not going through-wandering aimlessly or without direction, you are GROWING through! There might be tears, frustration, and pain but you are going to be better, stronger, and more determined when this is over. You are growing, cementing your roots in Christ!
So the next time someone asks you what’s going on, how’s everything going, or when you are dealing with a rough circumstance-tell them you are growing through!
Peace and Blessings
