When we are the midst of a struggle it can be difficult to recall previous circumstances in which God has protected us. And yet this is the time in which those remembrances can be most helpful. Faith is our best friend when we are in dire straights. It allows us to turn to God and surrender. This represents the ultimate in humility, relegating our ego to the status of worms. In order for us to receive the deliverance of God we must willingly surrender our personhood to God. Suddenly out of the depths of anguish, all is clear, we eventually see a breakthrough of light.
And so it is! Amen!
