David said, “The Lord, who saved me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, will save me from the hand of this Philistine.” - 1 Samuel 17:37 (NRSV)
For three years I faced one challenge after another. I was diagnosed with burnout and depression, and I had to give up my profession as a teacher.
Since then, I have had to deal not only with my recovery, but I have also struggled to pay the rent, other bills,...

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
