Truly Seeing Yourself


May you believe in God...
But may you come to see that God believes in you.

May you have faith in Jesus...
But may you come to see that Jesus has faith that you can be like him...

A person of love and compassion and truth.

A person of forgiveness and peace and grace and joy and hope.

Thanks Troy, I am reminded of the significance of community in becoming the person who Jesus desires and the empowerment of the Trinity to be the person of love, compassion,truth and forgiveness.

That not only requires and work of God & touch of Jesus

BUT

work on my part to study His Word & talk to God thru prayer

God and Jesus are always ready to do their part, it is me who needs to put forth more effort on my end.

I'm a slackard
