Evolution

Today was the first full day of spring. With this, I marvel at the landscape changes and think about creation and new growth. With each new season I reflect on my spiritual growth. Some years I notice more change than others. Seasons of stillness test my patience, but I have faith that God is transforming me into the person I am meant to be.

If being the image of God is at the heart of evolution in Christ, then the spiritual life is essential to Christian evolution. A dynamic interior spirit must be at the heart of change. Change is not what happens outside us; rather, change must first take root within us. . . . Just as the world of nature has an inner freedom to be itself, so too Christian life. ~Ilia Delio
