God has been good to me. I have experienced many good things; I will not tell you why I deserved any of them, because I did not.
God’s love has carried me from one place to another, blessing me in ways that drew me closer to Him. What I would call periods of time spent in Devine classrooms, the Scriptures indicate time on the Potter’s wheel. Jesus’ love changed me; my behavior is different. Faith has a way of encouraging obedience. “If you love Me, you will keep my commandments” (John 14:15 NASB)
My need has been for God’s goodness, I had none of my own. “Repent and believe in the gospel” (Mark 1:15 NASB) has been my lifeline from place to place growing in the Lord. He will never leave you or forsake you, no matter what. We are loved.
“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;” (Ephesians 2:8)
