DAY 4: THE LESSONS WE LEARN WHEN WE’RE ON OUR KNEES

LIFE CAN BE HARD, even brutal. It can so often be marked by pain, loss, grief, broken relationships, and ill health. No one can avoid all of these things, because they are part of the journey. And we wouldn’t be human if we didn’t at times feel desperate for help.

But the wonder of our faith is that those moments aren’t times when we are hopeless or helpless. In fact, it is the opposite. They are our times of maximum power. We just don’t always know it or feel it. But read this:

“You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.” (Matthew 5:3)
