"I am learning God’s love does meet us where we are, but God loves us too much to let us stay there. I have learned that God, through God’s grace, molds us and shapes us to be like Christ. I have also learned that God sends people to walk with us on this journey of growth and transformation. Sometimes the molding and shaping process can be painful, but God always puts people in our path to walk with us, to encourage us, and to help keep us focused on Christ as we grow."
