I am so very thankful for Christ’s sacrifice. Thankful that I have believed through faith, placing my confidence in Christ. As a result there is significance, relevance, and value to my life. As the world continues to move further into moral decline, I am thankful for my family who has been honest and open in guiding me in what they knew was right. I am equally thankful how God has guided me to where I am today. I can have hope and confidence in the one who is molding and shaping me into His fashion.
Why can’t we believe God when he says in Heb. 12:10-11 that “God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.”
I have been seeking discipline in my life and left desperate to find answers that can promote true and lasting change in my own heart and mind. I thank God for the truth that he reveals to me in His timing. Through my failures and my sin, Christ is revealed and is provided as the answer for true and lasting change. Phil 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
