For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.   {Romans 8:5}

You and I both know this verse is true, but how soon we forget! Walking with God is the most amazing beyond this world thing that has ever happened to us, but it can be a little back and forth sometimes. When I have a bad allergy day, I can struggle to keep on mind on Him!

Let's look at Romans again, at verse 14: For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. God in His incredible mercy doesn't throw us out when we mess up, but He knows that we will gain our balance soon enough and walk with Him a bit longer next time, and a lot more over time.

It reminds me of my baby girl in this picture. I didn't scold her at 6 months because she didn't walk. She needed the process of time and movement to strengthen her muscles so that she could stand at the right time. My patience with her gave her the confidence to walk more steps one day than she did before.And so God teaches us, encourages us along the way, and oh the benefit that we enjoy! It is beyond words.
