"Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ." Philippians 1:6
A few days ago my daughter posted a link on her Facebook concerning the coloring of your hair-- she is a cosmetologist. It was entitled, "Trust The Process", and it showed several pictures of the stages that hair has to go through in order to get the color from a dark brown to a light blonde. There were about six or seven stages and each stage required at least an hour of time. But if you "trusted the process" the end result would be the goal you were hoping to achieve.
Life is full of processes. When you make pottery, it starts out as a lump of clay and then goes through a long process before it becomes a vessel. Baking in cake requires a process. The process begins with multiple ingredients and after going through several steps and time in the oven, your cake is completed.
When the Lord saved us, He gave us eternal life but He also has a plan and goal for our lives. In order to accomplish His goal we have to go through a process of transformation. This transformation doesn't happen over night, it involves a process. The process takes time. During the process it may not look like any change is taking place. It may look like we are going in the wrong direction. It may be hard. It may involve some fire, some pruning, some molding, some stripping, and so on. But the end result will be His goal for our lives.
Sometimes what we are going through is nothing more than the transformation process. Will you trust the process? Will you allow the process to accomplish the change that needs to take place in you? Will you be patient during the process? Will you hold on and not give up? The end result will be worth it. The end result will be God's perfect will and plan accomplished in your life.
Have a great day. Trust the process and trust the Lord who initiates and watches over the process.
