God is faithful to complete the work He has started in us. He does all the work, but we can hinder it and cause unwelcome consequences to ourselves. We can all account for some (many?) mistakes and wrong turns we took in our lives, yet God also uses these to mold us into the image of His dear son Jesus. The more we resist, the more He corrects. The Word says that “when a man has suffered enough, he stops sinning”. No one likes suffering or correction, but it surely gets our attention and compels us to choose better. Jesus said, “I will never leave you or forsake you”. Wow, that sure is a comfort to know, that whatever we go through, whether by mistake or by His divine decision, it is for our good and for “the work” in progress,… until we see Him face to face and we shall be just like Him.
Bless His Holy Name.
