“Grow in Grace” is no understatement. It means we continue to be like a tree, (Planted by the living waters) Growing fruit in our lives as a living being IN HIM. No tree ever grew better from having a list of rules read to it, or being read the riot act.
God plants (his word in you) and he will surely water it and cause it to grow. Our job is surrender, Trusting Him, Believing in Him (for all things) And even Self-Control is a fruit of the Spirit, and not a work of the flesh. (See Galations).
Think about that for a moment! “Hello there, righteous little tree!
God loves you, SO MUCH!”
2 Peter 3:18 “but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity.” Amen.
I was that "unpopular" wierdo kid, that didn't fit in anywhere, in High School. I guess I never knew my place in life, until Jesus took me in. I've been rejected, misunderstood, left out, bullied, abused, scandalized, and labeled. In 2002 I got on a bus and left a marraige of sixteen years, that was fraught with abuse and heartache. In school, I used to be so afraid to stand in front of the class and speak, my hands woud visibily shake, and I could not look at my audience without being terrified.
Years later, I find myself leading a school music production, speaking in front of churches, and walking around with confidence, because I know the King of Kings is at my side.
My ministry, prayers and blogs are directed toward those who feel like they were never enough. You never fit in.
If I can help you in any way, if you need a special speaker to speak hope to the hurting, or if you would like a copy of my Testimony book (Grace to the Rescue) let me know. I am here for you. I also have a new book out "Confidence".
With Love, Laura
