Learning to Stand

What a stellar month for my grandson, Canyon!  He just turned 9 months old and in just the last 3 days he went from beginning to crawl, to pulling himself up at the coffee table, to walking to his mom while holding onto the couch AND got his first tooth! Changes are coming fast and furious!

Watching his desire to stand, got me thinking about my spiritual walk and how I wanted to just kind of crawl along, happy with knowing God had saved me. Why didn’t I have this desire to stand in my faith? You know, the working out of my faith, being ready to share my hope with others.

It takes a lot of practice to stand, but it’s what God asks of me. I hope, like me, your desire to stand is strong.

In Christ,
Jim Bouma
