Change Takes Time

Put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.—Ephesians 4:24 NLT

Sometimes spiritual growth happens overnight. Most times, it is a gradual process that takes patience and dedication. Don’t be discouraged if your faith walk hasn’t progressed as far as you hoped. God isn’t in a hurry!

Heavenly Father, if I feel discouraged or troubled by doubt and disbelief help me to remember that faith is patient.
