Prayer: When you say that you want to be more like Jesus, God hears and answers that prayer. However the answers may come through difficulties. James 1:2 says to count it all joy because the end result is worth it. A rock is hard and coarse, but with constant sanding it becomes smooth and shiny. Life circumstances are the sandpaper God uses to polish your character until you shine and reflect Jesus. God wants to let you know how much He loves you and how much you can trust Him. This is what draws others to follow Jesus. In the midst of this you will find: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, self-control. This is your life-witness. Rejoice in what God gives you. Joyfully, Joyce
