"Take the hardest thing in your life—the place of difficulty, outward or inward, and expect God to triumph gloriously in that very spot. Just there He can bring your soul into blossom." (Lilias Trotter)

Can this really be true? Can the heart of pain become a soul in blossom? Lord, come in and triumph gloriously in the very hardest thing in my life! Whisper Your comfort to me. Fill up this lonely heart as only You can.
This is a painful world. Filled up with sin and brokenness. I long to escape it! I feel jealous of my husband who has gone on before me...left me behind. This life sometimes feels like a very difficult battle—a deeply wrenching struggle.
And I look around. I look at the pain in your lives too. The illness. The battle against yourself. The depression. The loss of a dream. The loss of one you loved and thought you could never do without... And I desperately pray for us all that He would triumph gloriously IN THAT VERY SPOT. Love to you, my dear friends.
