I know your power is amazing.
I’ve watched you take care of crises and walk with me in the darkest of days.
I’ve lit candles and prayed with all my heart
and begged and pleaded
and you always answered.
And even when your answer was, “No. Not yet.”
I could trust you
and wait expectantly.

But now…
as I stare at my next challenge,
I feel hopeless.

You are the same.
You are powerful and righteous and just.
But I…
I am doubting that you CAN do what you said you’d do…
I sorta kinda want to believe…
So please HELP.
