To Evolve means to change or develop slowly often into a better, more complex, or more advanced state.
Have you evolved? As a believer…as a woman…as a mother…as a friend…as a student…as a teacher….as a worker…as a boyfriend….as a wife…as a girlfriend?….etc. The list goes on. But ask yourself this question. Because if you’re not evolving then what are you doing?
I delved deep into my life as a tried to answer this question, and to be completely honest, I have and sadly I have not(This may or many not be true….let me explain). Physically, I have truly evolved and metamorphosed into an absolutely beautiful creation of God; mentally I have evolved; spiritually I have evolved beyond my imagination, and others. However, socially within certain relationships, I have not. It is sad to even write about this, because it is hard to believe. I still remain the person that cannot fully let go of situations(Lord help me).
For example, I am nearing one of the greatest moments in my journey on earth, and I found myself thinking about how the people I thought would be there for me on that day, no longer exist in my life, and how much they have hurt me by doing that. How our dreams of creating memories died before my big day!
Don’t get me wrong, I have the most amazing support system in my life right now, I wouldn’t trade them for anything! My friends…My man…My family….My church….even some course coursemates. If I could call them Perfect, I would.
I know this, that God has a plan, and He has had it since I was born…Amazing! This plan, I know is to bring me joy, hope and an even greater future.
So maybe I have evolved…actually I have evolved, just that this particular portion has deeper lessons to be learned, and thus has a much slower process. But I rest in it, I trust in Him, and I will wait on Him. (Proverbs 16:1-4, Psalm 20:7, Psalm 31:4, Psalm 27:14, Psalm 33:20)
(Meditate on these verses)
The reality is that every single living thing on Earth is constantly evolving, at least to some extent. So enjoy your process!
