Is there peace to be found in the midst of a busy time when it seems, as it were, that God sets you aside? When you have precious little energy to devote to focused study & prayer and even less time, does the light go out? Has God forgotten you?
I remain convinced that God is faithful. His grace and mercy never run dry. While the desert might seem harsh, He guides you there for a purpose. Challenges and failures are tools in the Master's hand, molding you as He sees fit, purposefully and with great care.
