Cling to Hope
"Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." James 5:16
I must confess that over the last few weeks I feel like I have been in the boxing ring of life and knocked down hard, with the overwhelming feeling of defeat. I have experienced it spiritually, mentally and physically. I have arrived where the deepest hurts and wounds – those that seem to define me for my entire life - is being brought to the place where Dr. Jesus can do what is needed. It's raw, exposed and it hurts – overwhelmingly so.
I confess too, that I am believing that this “down for the count” experience will lead to a radical life changing victory. Defeat is part of life. I was thinking about the story of the woman with the issue of blood who touched the hem of Jesus' garment and was healed.
