Roses Without Thorns
a personal testimony
Some of the things God speaks to us personally, are to prepare us to recognize Him in a moment when we would normally rush to our natural ways of solving problems or being hard on ourselves. He longs to teach us lessons in the ordinary happenings of the day that we would begin looking for a God-ward approach to each situation and so that we would treat ourselves in the way He sees and loves us.
This is one of the oddest outworking of a word... something you just don't make up!
