oh God thank you for this one good thing that we can glean from this otherwise grim situation - a second nature of full dependence on you. a life of humility so ingrained in our consciousness that running to you and moving in your provision is our gut reaction especially in times of trouble and conflict. may this be our default when we are caught off-guard - a mentality shaped by your word, what you say we can do and your unlimited grace that goes with it. what an amazing way to live! the only way to live! thank you, lord, you are beyond description!
