Grace for the New Year ~ By the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. (1 Corinthians 15:10) ~ Grace is not only God’s disposition to do good for us when we don’t deserve it. It is an actual power from God that acts and makes good things happen in us and for us. [...]
You don’t know God is all you need until God is all you’ve got. Even when it seems like the world is falling apart, God hears your prayers. He will take care of you. You can depend on his strength instead of your own.
God’s ultimate goal for your life is to make you like his Son, Jesus. He wants you to grow spiritually and become a person who tries to act, think, and love like Christ, but this is a gradual process that takes perseverance. Keep going and never stop trying. "Yet, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand." - Isaiah 64:8
