Today, I heard of this phenomena called “stunting”~Teri

Guest post by Facebook friend, Teri Undreiner

If you want to keep a fish from growing to it’s “normal” size,, you have to put it in a very small tank or bowl. Eventually.. it will develop abnormalities/deformities, IF it’s strong enough to survive, or die at the smaller size because it’s internal organs will continue to grow.

I thought this was so interesting when compared to the “normal” christian life. Many of us are not in our natural habitiat or are trying to conform to someone else’s tank/bowl/vision.

The question then, is one of growth. Am I growing where I am or am I being “stunted”? Is where I am RIGHT now allowing my “inner” life to develop normally? I’m talking about life in general, not neccessarily where you go to church. I’m talking about the “whole” tank situation in our lives. It’s a really good question and not only for believers.

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
