An acorn doesn’t grow into an oak tree overnight; it takes years to grow into something strong and sturdy. Despite the cues from nature, we seem to think important things in our lives should take root and flourish overnight.
God knows the talents and gifts He’s given us. He is convinced of who we can become. Sometimes it just takes us a while to agree.
What did you want to be when you grew up? Maybe those things you enjoyed doing don’t have to be sacrificed on the altar of adulthood.
Things don’t always turn out the way we’d hoped. The good news is, we can put our faith in something more solid than an outcome.
