The will of God will never take you, where the grace of God cannot keep you.

But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
2 Corinthians 9:6-7 ~
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
~ 2 Corinthians 12:8-9 ~
Hello friends. (smile) Spiritual growth is a lifelong process. Years ago, I was genuinely shocked when I realized spiritual growth never stops. There is always something to learn.
Spiritual fruit continues to grow and replace anything not of love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance, with the guiding of the Holy Spirit, within us.
Praise The Lord for his grace. Grace is given daily. We have grace even when we stumble. Grace frees us from condemnation or berating ourself for mistakes. Its all part of growing and learning.
Gratitude and giving to others keep us humble and gives glory to God.
Blessings, my friends, as we live today in God’s amazing grace, by faith and enjoy the H to Z challenge! (smile)
