Sometimes, I get frustrated with God.
Well, not really with God, more like frustrated with myself and the way I treat God.
I get down because I know I’m not where I need to be.
I’m not where I want to be.
I get mad because my life is still so much about me and so little about Him.
There’s more me in me than I’d like.
I get frustrated because it seems like no matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to get it right.
I continue to do the same stupid stuff again and again.
I get worried because I don’t seem to have those “God experiences” as often as I think I should.
I struggle at times to even spend time with Him.
I get anxious because I know that there is so much more for me to learn, so much more that God wants me to experience, so much more that I want to be doing.
I want to grow up much faster in my faith.
And then I read things like this from Paul…
Philippians 3:12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.
I realize that I’m not alone.
I’m always a work in progress.
So are you.
So are your children.
So are your friends.
So is your spouse.
So is your Pastor.
No matter how far you feel like you are from where you need to be….
Or how frustrated you get with others because they don’t seem to be where they need to be….
Desperately seek Him.
He will fill you.
More and More.
