By Amy at Make Me a Mary
It’s funny how when we’re little we all just want to grow up. I’ve seen it with all four of my kids. Two are adult-sized already and the other two are on the verge (#2 is 6’2″ already and still checking his height all the time). These are the years of obsessing about growth.
I look at them sometimes and am just speechless over what those tiny newborn lives have grown into.
But their mother is growing too and I can tell you it hurts. But I’d like to create a little speechlessness myself. I pray that the people who knew me when will marvel at what I grow into. Or I should say, what He grows me into.
May He grow all of us into something new, something He can use. And when the growing pains get unbearable, may we lean into Him–every day, every hour.
