I'll admit it. I've had a pretty cushy life.
Haven't experienced much pain.
No great tragedies of which to speak.
Never been in utter despair.
But I've had a brush with a reality that turned my life upside down for a moment; the extent of which is yet unknown.
And I've learned that this is true. So true.
"Your most profound and intimate experiences
of worship will likely be in your darkest days -
when your heart is broken,
when you feel abandoned,
when you're out of options,
when the pain is great -
and you turn to God alone."
