Faith must be nutured!
There is one thing that I had to come to realize and that nothing grows unless it is firmly planted and established. For one, my faith and journey early on was not firmly rooted but shallow planted.
I was all over the place honestly. I was in this church and that church as if to say I was chasing waterfalls so to speak. Just wanting to hear a word from God and hear deeper revelation.
What happened as a result of that was limited to no faith growth. As well as, no firm foundation in much of anything thus creating immaturity in places of my life.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. Psalms 1:3 KJV
What God had to do was slow me down and replant me not in a shallow place but where my planting would become firm, rooted and established in something for once.
It is through God planting me at Reformation Developmental Center which is lead by Pastor Juanita Gibbs. Her teaching helped slow me down and not be all over the place.
I was in all kinds of books that didnt help bring change, I was in studies on youtube that were to no effect. When I learned to focus on what she was bringing that was strategic for me and cut out all the rest, it has made great deal of difference in how I grow now.
I can honestly say I am not where I want to be, but to God be the Glory for Him using my Pastor for helping me be not where I used to be. She has helped nurture my faith journey so that it can become stronger. She knew I needed to be established beside the waters of the spirit and take root in truth to be firm and have fruit in all seasons.
