From a Devotional on Christlikeness – Stay focused, C Ten Boom said ‘if you look within, you’ll feel depressed, if you look without you’ll be distressed, if you look to Christ you’ll be at rest’. When you understand that God’s objective is to make you more like Christ, you’ll start praying fewer ‘comfort me prayers’ and more ‘conform me prayers’. Instead of asking ‘why me Lord?’ you’ll ask ‘what do you want me to learn Lord’. James 1:4 MSG -So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.
