That is just what I receive daily from my Heavenly Father.
You see, I am far from who I need to be. I know the Fruits of the Spirit, I know the list of things that I should and should not be and yet, I fail miserably every day.
I lose my temper. I lose my patience. I say things that I wish could be taken back…..
I ask for forgiveness.
From my kids. From my husband. From others. From my Lord.
Human nature isn’t always quick to forgive. The Lord is!
I am thankful for His “unmerited favor” that daily washes over me.
Joy to You!
