"This is why He warned people to ‘count the cost’ before becoming Christians. ‘Make no mistake,’ He says, ‘if you let me, I will make you perfect. The moment you put yourself in My hands, that is what you’re in for. Nothing less or other than that. You have free will, and if you choose, you can push Me away. But if you do not push Me away understand that I am going to see this job through. Whatever suffering it may cost you in your earthy life, whatever inconceivable purification it may cost you after death, whatever it costs Me, I will never rest, nor let you rest, until you are literally perfect—until my Father can say without reservation that He is well pleased with you, as He said He was well pleased with me. This I can do and will do. But I will not do anything less."

Wandering from the fold of God

Interposed His precious blood"

"We are never going to enjoy stability, we are never going to enjoy spiritual maturity until we learn how to do what’s right when it feels wrong, and every time you do what’s right by a decision of your will using discipline and self control to go beyond how you feel, the more painful it is in your flesh, the more you’re growing spiritually at that particular moment."

I normally am not a Joyce Meyer fan, but this is spot on.
