The title is take from the July 31'st reading of My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. As is this quote:

"Not only must our relationship to God be right, but the external expression of that relationship must be right. Ultimately God will let nothing escape, every detail is under His scrutiny. In numberless ways God will bring us back to the same point over and over again. He never tires of bringing us to the one point until we learn the lesson, because He is producing the finished product."

Sometimes we wonder, "How long do I have to go through this," or "Why is this happening again?" In all reality God is teaching us, and sometimes we don't always learn from the first time. We need to be honest with ourselves. Are we destined to repeat our mistakes or are we going to learn from them and move on? I fear that if we don't learn, we will be in a continual state of disillusionment thinking that we are over certain problems when we are really just ignoring them.

How long will we fight the change? How long will we continue our futures to go unchanged? Are you destined to make the same mistakes over and over or are you going to really change?

"Let your endurance be a finished product, so that you may be finished and complete, with never a defect." James 1:4
