Thinking About My Purpose in LifePoints to Ponder:
While we worry about how fast we grow, God is concerned about how strong we grow.
There is no growth without change, no change without fear or loss, and no loss without pain.
God is never in a hurry but he is always on time.
There are no shortcuts to maturity.
