Not Being but Becoming

“This life, therefore, is not righteousness but growth in righteousness,

not health but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise.

We are not yet what we shall be but we are growing toward it.

The process is not yet finished but it is going on.

This is not the end but it is the road.

All does not yet gleam in glory but all is being purified.”

~Martin Luther~

  1. Amen, Amen, and Amen! I am so thankful for God’s grace and mercy through all of my imperfections. Reading this makes me take time to reflect on my journy of life that I have in Christ. I am so excited that I get to be on this journy because of Him.

  2. It’s been quite a journey thus far, but I’m glad its not yet finished. I’m also glad this is not the end ,but it is the road.
