a marathon, not a sprint: a process, not a zap

“Friends, when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn’t on the job. Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner.”
~ 1 Peter 4:12-13 The Message

“What I also find encouraging is when I remember that learning to trust God is a process. It’s not like we wake up one day super-faithful. Instead, our faith grows as we encounter trials and press on through them. Even when we falter through a trial, as I heard it said, ‘This is the middle of the story, not the end.’ We just get back on that proverbial horse.”
