Some of us have become so steeped in negativity, we’ve lost the power to rejoice and to give thanks and to enjoy life and be real. I’m not what I was, and that’s the grace of God. I’m not yet what I will be, and that will be by the grace of God! Therefore, I am who I am by the grace of God. How can I not enjoy where I am right now?! And if your life is hung up on a negative thing about yourself, that’s the very thing that God wants to change first.
