Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
Before I ever had any real change to hope for, any real affliction to be patient through, and any desperate situation to pray about, I thought I’d be really good at these things. Now I know the truth: I’m totally dependent on God for joy, patience, and the desire to pray. Being a struggling human is so humbling.
In Him we live and move and have our being.
