In work, ministry, and life we all experience frequent seasons when things don’t work out quite the way we had hoped.
In missions, our internal dialogues consist of “Am I making a difference?” or “Will these things ever change?”
When we are trusting for provision, for a breakthrough in our health, or seeing a life changed; there is very fine line between losing hope or accepting the limitations of the change that will happen; all the while still believing in a God who could do the unexpected.
We’ve all heard the stories where people are told to “just have faith”. I personally have seen a friend who was told her father died because of a lack of faith.
Is that the answer? More faith?
This year has brought several of these challenges to our family. Ministry disappointment, divorce of those close to us, and various health related issues.
