Paul wrote, “I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.” - Philippians 4:12 (NIV)

I am going through a prolonged period of unemployment. In the past, I had always been able to find work. But during this current period of unemployment, I have come to accept that I will experience hardships in my life.
Hardships are not necessarily times of judgment or 
punishment. Good...

Today's Prayer
Dear God, take away our fear as we face hardships. Give us peace in knowing and trusting you. Amen.

I was used to contemplative prayer, to silence and service and listening for God’s still, small voice in quiet, hidden spaces. Suddenly none of my life felt quiet or hidden – it was all loud, messy, and exposed." Discover more.
