Some days your longing to be a faithful follower of Jesus Christ who has been changed by his grace runs smack dab into the realities of how you act. And that’s hard. And painful. Because not only do you have to deal with the pain you’ve inflicted on another, it causes you to question the integrity of your faith. And that’s hard. And painful. But in the midst of it all, God’s grace will prevail. And it, indeed, will change everything.
