"Thy gentleness hath made me great,
and I would gentle be,
Tis love that plans my lot-not fate!
Lord teach this grace to me. . ."

Hello readers! I had a great begining to 2016, and by great I mean the Lord has really been teaching me about prayer, gentleness, self-sacrifice and peace during my quiet times. Its so exciting to feel like HE is there growing you and aiding you, helping you along and teaching your heart so many deep things. Half the time I don't feel I can fully comprehend it all, the peace in stress, the prayer in busy times, the gentleness amid so much ungraciousness. But, I know it is His work, not my own striving, that will transform us into Christ-likeness.
