Request for Humility

My daily prayer is for more grace and humility.  Today, I found this prayer answered fully and I was uncomfortable and a little resentful.  Then I was gently reminded that my prayer was being fulfilled and Hebrews 12:11 came to thought.  It reads, “All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.”  As I stepped back and viewed the experience, I was truly blest by this gentle nudge in spiritual growth.  There is never a retrograde step in growth and for this, I am grateful.
