When you’re in a tight and painful spot, you usually want one thing: out. But what if, right in the middle of that tight and painful spot, you could breathe freely and even whistle a tune? That would make “no exit” look like a welcome sign.
“You make space for me in my distress. . . . You give me gladness of heart. . . .” Psalm 4:1,7
Father, make me fully alive, right where I am.
