Growth is not necessarily pleasurable. Sometimes, it is in losing, in experiencing dilemmas, and facing “dips” where we realize how weak we are, and how far we are from really “flourishing”.
Sometimes it could also be that we’ve grown too far away from the vine, and thought that our branches are perfect already. We fail to examine ourselves.
We have no choice but to look at the proverbial mirror, identify what we may have taken for granted, and from there, seek to grow again.
John 15:1-8. I am the vine, you are the branches
