As I talked to a friend going through a struggle she kept saying, "I guess this is who I am now." I finally told her what I have to remind my own imperfect, wandering heart of so often: our struggles refine us but they don't define us. God alone determines our identity and destiny so whatever we're facing today doesn't get to have the final say. We're loved, covered by grace, and our story isn't over yet. I love how Gracie Allen said it: "Never place a period where God has placed a comma." @holleygerth _____________ . . .
