Success doesn’t happen overnight. And while we could easily make something look good, deep confidence only comes by fully engaging the work. As we honor the process we can rest knowing we have what it takes.

A house needs a strong foundation in order to stand secure over the years.

And while it’s tempting to built whatever is quick and easy, the strength and security that comes from following a proven process is worth it.

All too often we’re quick to build a name for ourselves without taking the time to build on a solid foundation.

We might have a good job and a bit of status and prestige in the community. But we’re simply a fancy house built on a foundation of sand.

To dig deeper beyond our surface skills and credentials we must engage in the process of soul excavation.

And this requires much more than reading a few books, attending a weekend retreat, or even going to a handful of counseling sessions.

These are all great starts. But at some point the process requires a shift in our posture and approach to life.

We begin our journey of inner discovery and opening to all the ways God is trying to grow us into our true potential.

And this takes place throughout our life and relationships.

For instance, we discover that work is an extension of our kingdom and that our practice of love includes sex.

Honoring the process means we don’t settle for quick answers or expect to arrive overnight. We take our time in discovering all that God has called us to be.

As such, we can then show up with a confident strength knowing we have what it takes to bring more life and goodness into the world.

Take your time and honor the process.
