Update on "Stretch"

I have been processing the "being stretched" blog. I have come to a conclusion. I don't believe God is looking to stretch us, per se, I believe He wants us to grow. When there is growth, you don't shrink (barring any osteoperosis). When you stretch, there is the rebound. I don't want to rise to the occasion and then rebound back. I want to grow, and then grow, and then grow more, and hold more, and believe more and grow more and etc. Maybe when Paul said from Glory to Glory we could say from growth to new growth. Let's don't just stretch and pop back. We all know what happens when we catch the end of that rubber band coming back. It stings. Let's, instead, grow.

I'm with you on the rubber band thing. Ouch! You really need to preach that sometime.

That is good! I also understand feeling stretched sometimes, but it is probably more in the growth process...growing pains kinds...no pain no gain!!
