My reflection today:
“My faith is tested many times every day, and more times than I’d like to confess, I am unable to keep the banner of faith aloft. If a promise is not kept, or if a secret is betrayed, or if I experience long-lasting pain, I begin to doubt God and God‘s love. I fall so miserably into the chasm of disbelief that I cry out in despair. Then the spirit lifts me up again and once more I am secured￼ in faith. I don’t know how that happens, save when I cry out earnestly I am assured immediately and I am returned to faithfulness. I am once again filled with spirit and firmly planted on solid ground.” – Maya Angelou￼￼￼
Maya sums up what many of us go through at different times.
We can go along doing fine and then all of a sudden reach our limit where we feel we can’t go on anymore.
We cry out to our God and our faithful God gives us the grace that we need during￼￼ those tough times.
