Grace changes us, and Change is painful (Flannery O'Connor)
So, see...God gives us grace, which in turn transforms us, changes us, but the truth is that change is painful. I know that by "sitting in our pain" we learn what GRACE really is. I was touched by this quote today because I have seen amazing evidence of God's grace all around me this past week. I am in awe of how God offers it over and over again. His grace makes me want to mold into a new creation, his grace makes me want to clean out all the gunk in my life, His grace makes me want to be more like Him, and His grace makes me want to worship Him for who He is!! I pray that God would make His grace known to you and I pray that you would be inspired to change due to His grace. Let's change, regardless of pain we must "sit in".....God calls us to! Let's become more and more like Jesus and less and less like the world!
