“Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked. . . . Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” - 2 Kings 6:15, 17 (NIV)
I can identify with Elisha’s servant who stumbled out of bed to discover an army aligned against him. Like the servant, I have sometimes found myself surrounded by threatening circumstances — ominous medical diagnoses, financial strains, family crises. When normal life takes an adverse turn, it’s easy to feel vulnerable...
I am always surrounded by God’s protective power.

The RESILIENCE conference in 2021 was so uplifting and nourishing. It was wonderful to be with other Christians around the world at this retreat, who truly care about responding to trauma in a compassionate way by teaching spiritual practices to help with grounding and healing.”
Join us for the next RESILIENCE conference on September 29-30, 2023. Learn more at UpperRoom.org/resilience.
