The one where struggling can be a good thing

"So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life - your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life - and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God., You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out opf you, develops well-formed maturity in you."
- Romans 12:1-2, The Message

Let this speak to all of us, in times of crisis and in times of wellness, that in all things, God's will may prevail and His name be glorified.
