An exercise:

  • We live in a world that is broken and hostile. Make a quick list of the personal challenges in your life at the moment. Now pray Psalm 124 out loud, knowing that God is ‘for you’. Your help is in the name of the Lord.

Our faith develops out of the most difficult aspects of life, not the easiest.
