Spiritual growing pains

Put to death therefore what is earthly in you… seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.

Colossians 3:1-17 ESV

Spiritual awakening is a process of becoming authentic and genuine. Moving from the illusion of external controls of our false image and other’s perception – to the internal illusions of control where we embrace true honesty; listening to counsel of the spirit of God, and having true relationships. A person ultimately sheds the old lifestyle in order to experience the new way of living.

The true relationship with self and God begins to grow. We become more aware of our emotions, need for rest, of what compromises and violates our core values. And, while change sometimes comes within a insightful flash and moment of clarity, real change comes through those small growing pains of spiritual maturity.

Closer we draw to God, through Jesus Christ, we become more sure of our true sense of worth and purpose, draw closer to friends and family, and our real self evolves and reveals itself.
