Precious Disciple of Jesus Christ, the Daystar,
God is so amazingly good! Not only does He save us, but He maintains us as well. Indeed, there is nothing He does not give us to become all He has created us to be.
At times, we may feel discouraged and even wonder if we’re making any spiritual progress. But we can know for sure, based on the integrity of His Word, that God is working in us, giving us not only the power to do what pelases Him, but even giving us the desire to obey Him. What more can we ask for?
From this day forward, let’s show Him our gratitude by responding to His awesome love in ways that give Him honor and praise.
Your sister in Christ,
Dr. MaryAnn Diorio
