"God hides his work, in the spiritual order as in the natural order under an unnoticeable sequence of events." ~ François Fénelon

This hidden work of God is a nurturing that prepares us for what appears to be a quantum leap forward. What we see as the quantum leap may actually only be the smallest part of what has been going on in a long, steady process of grace, working far beyond our knowledge and understanding, to bring us to that point where we are ready for God to move us into a new level of spiritual awareness and a new depth of wholeness in relationship with God in Christ. There simply is no instantaneous event of putting your quarter in the slot and seeing spiritual formation drop down where you can reach it, whole and complete.
