Process over Product

Happy New month sisters,

April is the fourth month of the year and number 4 represents completeness, my prayer is that God shall complete all that He's started in us, In Jesus Name.

Being pregnant comes before the birth of any baby. Pregnancy is a process aimed at preparing parents towards the arrival of their child, 9 months is ample time for parents to prepare mentally, emotionally, financially and physically. One cannot be without the other, that is, without pregnancy there is no child even though after delivery, pregnancy (which is the process) vanishes to leave you with a child, which is the product.
The product (child) often outlast the pregnancy, if Jesus tarries. This is a vivid illustration that God's intention is to build lasting products from the processes he takes us through.

Take grapes for instance, it's end is the beginning of wine but before the wine, comes the crushing and fermenting of the grapes, which by no means is fun for the grapes.

I said these to say that, you might be in an uncomfortable season of process right now but best believe, there is a product and purpose in it for you.
From Genesis to Revelations, we see God taking different people on different processes with the certainty of purpose at the end of it all. Like Moses, David, Mary, Elizabeth, Hannah...all these people went through their peculiar processes that helped develop their character and faith, which is what God desires for us.
It is important we take a cue from Moses whom God took through a 40year process. We cannot rush God and until we show that we are worthy of the product that He has ahead, we just might not leave the processing room.

So sis, what do you say?

"I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels—a plentiful harvest of new lives." - John 12:24 NLT

"My suffering was good for me, for it taught me to pay attention to your decrees." - Psalms 119:71 NLT

See what Paul had to say about how we can find the strength to carry on when going through a seemingly difficult process?
"We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed." 2 Corinthians 4:7‭-‬9 NLT

May God strengthen each one of us for the journey we are currently in and that which is ahead.

Loads of love,

Your Sis
