Powerlessness is not a weakness, it's the wound the sets the journey into motion. There is a power that is benevolent and on your side. God longs to nurture you. Get ready to come to the end of your own resources. God is not holding your over a fire like a spider. God is your Father watching and waiting for the first sign of your return...Waiting with a ring, robe...and a party.
