Right now, we can feel like we’ve been waylaid — by life, by coronavirus, by the government. But the Lord is showing up, perhaps anonymously at first. We may not have known that he’s the one we’ve been grappling with. But he is. And he’s calling our name. Now, instead of seeking to overcome our circumstances, we need to cling to God through these circumstances, to know him in them. And instead of despising our weaknesses and our wounds, we can see them as marks of the true struggle. Our limps are not signs that God has abandoned us: they are signs that he has us and will not let us go.
