When You Are at the End of Your Rope…

When you are at the end of your rope, when you no longer have hope within yourself, that is when you run to God for mercy. It is admittedly difficult to accept the claim that God is  somehow hidden amid all of the wreckage of our lives.  But those who are willing to struggle and despair may in actuality be the best at understanding the realities of the Christian life.
