I've been struggling lately! Every time I sit down to blog I've been struck by how many people I know who are jsut plain hurting. Last week was stark as I listened to several women tell me their daily life stories. It's like watching Job in so many different people. There's just so much struggle going around.
In some ways I'm stumped right there. I know I need to pray these people know the strength of God and the presence of the Holy Spirit. I know God is moving in their lives in amazing ways and out of these struggles will come strength. But I also know that being stuck between a rock and a hard place is incredibly difficult. And these days difficult has gotten worse for many.
I pray we, as God's children, will find ways to share what we have. I pray God will show me how to open my door and meet the needs of those who ache. I pray I can trust God to use me as God sees fit. I pray I'm not my own stumbling block in help someone off their dung heap.
