  2. When there’s a will, there’s a way, but it depends on the strength of the will.
  3. God is interested in even the little things you think are insignificant like what to cook even when you’ve concluded. Just be willing to shift grounds to His place.

  9. God is the God of another opportunity and He doesn’t condemn.
  10. It’s possible to enter certain graces without knowing you’ve entered but it takes time, patience, and work.
