I am over the moon with the study of the Be-atitudes. God is opening my eyes to truths from His word which are proving to be convicting and transforming. I want to experience God’s perfect plan for happiness and I know that won’t happen in my current state. It happens as I allow God to change me from the inside out.
This week’s lesson is on meekness and wow, oh wow…this one got me. Meek–not a adjective I use to describe myself if I’m completely honest. Yet, I remember meeting a woman in my early twenties who I could describe only as “gentle.” She was a pastor’s wife and a chaplain for the company where I worked. I realized at the time, I wanted to be like her! What a worthy venture but a misguided plan. Only as I’ve sought after God has my heart begun to take on traits of meekness. There is still a LOOOOONG way to go but thank God for grace.
I can’t wait to hear how God speaks to your heart. Would you share with me in the comments how God is moving and shaping you?
