The Christian life is a process, even life in general is a process. It isn’t like when you become a Christian that you walk in an elevator and come out without problems, faults, or fears. They are still there, you still do crazy things, make crazy mistakes, and still hurt others and yourself. You still have these things that you have to work through. Life is a process, regardless if you are a Christian or not. We all have a path that we must walk on, this path leads to maturity. And everybody knows when you are traveling anywhere, it takes time. Depending on the obstacles in the road, even possible roadblocks, it slows down your traveling. But the thing is, you have to keep moving forward, even if it is a step or two forward, as long as you are moving, you are making progress… hang in there… God is a patient God.
