“Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.” – Psalm 42:7 Though it’s a theme we’ve touched on a lot recently, I feel like right now is a good time to continue talking about the refining and purifying power of struggles in our lives. There’s no doubt that history is unfolding before us in these turbulent times, and all of us are being challenged to look inside, examine our hearts, and find out what the Holy Spirit is saying to us. However, in order to do that, we must be willing to struggle with what we think we already know. This reminds me of when I went to seminary. Honestly, the only reason I had any desire to get a degree in theology was because I knew I had to have one in order to be an ordained pastor.
