Even Here

I don’t enjoy going through difficulties.

I prefer the stage of an endeavor when you are experienced, have already built momentum, and everything is running smoothly. You know what to do, and you know how to handle the challenges that come.

The new ventures with those unknowns? Uncomfortable. The rough patches that expose weaknesses? Not pleasant. The devastations that catch you by surprise? Let’s not even go there.

But in every uncomfortable, unpleasant, and devastating circumstance is a unique opportunity:

The chance to see what God is capable of.

I am here, He says. even here.
I am capable, He says, even now.
I love you, He says, and I will not stop.
