Today God’s been whispering to me …how many times have I prayed …”make me more like Jesus”…”I want to know You more, Lord”…how could that possibly happen without difficult times in which I can reveal God’s character and qualities? …how could that possibly happen without people treating me in such a way that I must learn, practice and demonstrate patience and forgiveness? …how could that possible happen without facing uncertainty and confusion so that God can show me His faithfulness?

Lord, it’s hard. I don’t want to practice those things. Help me to rejoice in You. Help me to choose to rejoice in You.

Hard things to hear (because I know I haven’t been revealing Christ as much as I’d like to be)…yet I love it when God whispers in my ear.

Thank You, Lord.
