Are You Content with Gradual Progress in Your Recovery?

Be content to go on quietly. When you discover something in yourself which is earthly and imperfect, be patient while you strive to cast it out. Your perceptions will grow. At first God will show you very obvious stumbling-blocks. Be diligent in clearing these away, and do not aim at heights to which you are not yet equal.

Leave all to God, and while you earnestly desire that He purify your intention, and seek to work with Him to that end, be satisfied with the gradual progress He sets before you; and remember that He often works in ways unseen by us.

Jean Nicolas (J N) Grou {adapted}
