You try not to feel the way you do. Nothing. You do everything you can to fix things. Nothing. You even call out to God. Nothing. Yet, amazingly, that moment when you feel as close to hopelessness as you’ve ever felt is often the exact moment that everything begins to change. Because it is in that moment of despair that you finally realize you need to do more than turn to God, you need to turn it over to God. By being real about your feelings, letting God go deep inside your soul, allowing God to offer you the healing you need and embracing God’s reconciling reality that not only brings things back together, it also brings about brand new possibilities. This is grace. It’s God’s gift to you. And God’s just waiting to amaze you with it.
