Jared left me a letter this morning. It's supernaturally appropriate. Some highlights:
"Distractions suck. They're very real things that strive to take our attention away from something else. The Evil One seems to be hitting us pretty hard with distractions recently..."
"...God has completely prepared us for today!"
"...I just realized that He has written our story in such a way that we will never again be satisfied with 'the pleasant life'."
"We've tasted the true water, and we can never be satisified with anything less."
"I'm convinced, my dear one, that God wants to use this short season of uncertainty and upheaval to take us deeper. He's setting Himself up for a huge win..."
Another friend put it this way: "God loves to stack the odds against Himself in our lives so He can show His power!"
I feel discouraged. I feel like I've already lost. But God...
That's all I have right now.
