There are trials and struggles. In the midst of all of this, mistakes are made. Guilt and shame are the driving force in the search for hope. Pain and sorrow cause us to question more than we ever did before. Life is leading us somewhere, but where and why? He never promised a life without these issues. What he promised was that we wouldn't be alone during them. He waits for us to enter his gates to find rest and peace. His courts are ready for forgiveness and healing if we'd only come. He calls us to come enter his courts.
