And I used to think that as I became a "mature Christian," I'd probably become pretty wise, and stop making so many mistakes. I guess I expected I'd become my picture of a "Godly older woman," like in Titus 2. And that maybe it would be a reasonably comfortable, relaxing, rocking-chair kind of experience.
But instead, the farther along I get in this journey, the less neatly defined things become, and the less comfortable I become about "myself."
Though, joyfully, I have become absolutely confident about a couple things (that have to do with God, rather than me - and maybe that's a sign of Christian maturity, after all):
- God loves me!
- God will never stop loving me, or reject me
- I know I can totally trust my Father to do the very best for me (and my family) according to His wonderful and amazing eternal purposes!
