Spiritual growth is an arduous, life-long task, and different for every person. God alone has control over exactly what happens to grow us spiritually.
Still, there are things that you can do to maximize the things you are learning when God moves you into those times when He has much to teach you. One of those is a spiritual growth journal.
Make a habit of praying through the things you are learning into your journal, and giving them time to really become a part of your thought process. Soak in all of the teaching you can, and work through the times you are angry, hurt, happy and confused with God. You'll find that He will use your time in reflection and writing to really help those major concepts He is teaching you hit home.
