“For Thou hast tried us, O God; Thou hast refined us as silver is refined.  Thou didst bring us into the net…We went through fire and through water; Yet, Thou didst bring us out into a place of abundance,” ~Psalm 66:10-12.

Sometimes, Abba parts the Red Sea, rescuing His children in order to demonstrate His grace and power.  In this way,  the world at large may come to know Him, (Exodus 14:4b).

But on other occasions, our heavenly Father simply sustains you and me so that we might come to know Him better.

Without a doubt, when backed against the wall, we grow deep in Christ.  As we turn our faces to the Light of the World, we blossom through the power of His Spirit.

In fact, in the midst of our “unbearables,” we may come to know and reflect the Great ‘I AM’ in ways that would have been otherwise impossible.

Back against the wall?  Rest assured that Abba has an incredible plan for you, His beloved child.

Grace leads you and me.  Mercy carries us… piggyback… through dark waters.  God’s love warms dark, cold spaces and illuminates lives.

Abba is all-sufficient (2 Corinthians 12:9).  By His power, we persevere even in the face of life’s nightmares.

Thus, walking with our heavenly Father through the ‘unbearable,’ we gain a deep and beautiful knowing.

Yes, the connection with Abba is good.  All the time.
