I highlighted those words from a March 8th devotional last year. This year, March 8th, those words made even more sense to me. Bookending a very challenging 12 months for me personally, professionally and spiritually.
Today as I read those words, what stands out the most is, gradually. That word, in hindsight, has been a struggle for me all year.
You see, gradually is not something I do very well. I generally need to know how something fits into my timeline or plan. Nothing I do is gradual, especially when it comes to goals and purpose. There is no gradual in the hustle! My expectation has always been that if I try hard enough, things will work out according to my ideal timeline. And my timeline has had nothing to do with delays. Or so I thought.
