Because my ways surpass your understanding do not expect your mind to comprehend them all. Simply receive and embrace them. They are my gift to you. My peace will comfort you in the midst of trials, struggles, and difficult lessons, as you embrace and receive my ways. As you continue to learn, your limits will expand. Your current limits are too small, so I will break them open and advance you past them. As you advance, you will continue to outgrow your new limits and boundaries, and they will need to be expanded. This cycle of continually expanding your limits will continue. You will continue to grow, and you will continue to increase, because these are my good plans for you. (1)
So know, as you complete one lesson, you have not finished. As you learn one lesson, another lesson is around the corner coming your way when you are ready for it. The cycle of learning will not stop, but will continue again and again. My grace will go before you and prepare you. My grace will be with you to help you along the way, day by day, minute by minute. You will not be overwhelmed, but will be empowered to stretch past your limits and continue to grow, increase, and advance. In all these things remember I am working to refine you. (2)
In this cycle of growth and process of endurance I am not only making you stronger, but I am also refining your character as well. This path of endurance will refine you and leave you not only stronger, but also safer, wiser, kinder, and more patient. As you are confronted with weaknesses and areas of growth you will see the expanse of these issues within your heart and character. (3)
Through it all, you will come out pure. My plans for you will be accomplished, and I will have made you ready. In it all, I will receive the glory for the good works done on your behalf, and we will rejoice together.
