The wonderful thing about this relationship we can have with Jesus is . . . He can be like a father that is teaching us how to be just like Him. I see struggles in my life as a Romans 5: 3-5 kind of way that lead to being conformed to His image (Rom 8:29, 1 Cor 15:49, 1 John 3:2). I look at Him as my creator and God who made me exactly how He wanted.
