With my whole heart I will seek Thee; let me not wander from thy commandments!
Christian character isn't born overnight! If we want souls that are strong and noble, beautiful in their reflection of the image of God, we must expect them to grow that way only through our personal search and lengthy pondering. We can't stay in a spiritual kindergarten and expect to graduate magna cum laude! The easy things we learned at the beginning will have to give way to the deeper things of the Spirit as we grow in grace. The things beyond are glorious in their contemplation, but there is a peace and victory available here and now. The Word of God can get into my heart to dwell there and transform me only as I take time to ponder and apply it.
