Lord, I have been so defeated by circumstances. I have felt like an animal trapped in a corner with nowhere to flee. Where are You in all this, Lord? The night is dark. I cannot feel Your presence. Help me to know that the darkness is really “Shade of Your hand, outstretched caressingly”; that the “hemming in” is Your doing. Perhaps there was no other way You could get my full attention, no other way I would allow You to demonstrate what You can do in my life. I see now that the emptier my cup is, the more space there is to receive Your love and supply. –Catherine Marshall, “Adventures in Prayer”
