As it sometimes happens, I found myself facing a challenging situation. “This is a hard time,” I shared with God while out on my morning walk.
“I know it is, Sparrow,” God answered.
“And painful, too,” I lamented.
“Indeed. Transformation can be painful at times,” God whispered.
“That’s what’s happening?” I asked. “I’m being transformed?”
“Yes. My hands are breaking away the hardened parts of you and transforming them with my love,” He explained. “The pain will pass.”
“Then I will submit to your perfect hands and trust that you are shaping me for the better,” I said.
“I’ll walk with you and comfort you this morning,” God said and we walked and talked until I had to return to the cottage to start my day at work. I trusted that God’s good hands would help me to be the person He wants me to be.
