Maybe this year makes a little more sense now.

"...What I learned in that process was what its like to come to a point in your life when you really have no where to turn but to God - and in those circumstances one truly learns how to pray and to receive the answers that come. Sometimes it was nothing more than a feeling that things would work out somehow-- No indication of how or when, but it would be alright. Sometimes it was an idea that would make a difference.

"I think what we have to do, when the pressures are there, and the clouds are dark and threatening, is take life a day at a time. It helps at times not to think too far ahead and just do what the day requires - 'give us this day our daily bread.' We're not anticipating the hardship or suffering that might be entailed, we sometimes just have to break it down to this momentthis day. And while deliverance is not immediate and you may not see the end still, you've got enough for today.

"When this began happening in my life, my prayer was 'give me a miracle, solve this problem.' And it took a while to finally come to the point of saying 'I am content to get a daily help and let it take what time it takes, knowing that I can rely upon God'... And maybe the greater blessing for us is to have to walk through it with Him."
