“Above all, trust in the slow work of God.” Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) God is using the fabric of our lives to transform us. “God comes to us disguised as our life,” says Paula D’Arcy.
I have accused God at times of being a snail in certain areas of my life where I wanted change. I even drew a picture of him! But more and more I realize that I am the snail. I can only change so fast and it is not God who is gumming up the works but me and my reluctance to face truth and be set free. Once God works with me then I have to be willing to change my habits and my way of approaching life. I can be very snail-like in those moments. He is patient and kind and seems to think all of eternity is available for this process!!!
