As I prayerfully get ready for today, I ask for grace for today and to keep my heart softened. When God chastens me, I realize it is to show me what I need to address. Often, it is ungodlike qualities which, in reality, have absolutely nothing to do with my true Identity as a child of God. Once, I thought these revelations were to punish me or sadden me, but I know as I become as a little child, I will be grateful for these lessons. 1 Peter 5:6 reads, “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.”
Once again, humility and gratitude remain key in this transformation.
