When everything looks bleak, we must keep our wits about us. Feelings come and go; thoughts spin around in our head in wild fashion. In everything, we must keep things in perspective. Our posture should be similar to Mary after the angel visited her. Consider her words: “I am the Lord’s servant. May your word to me be fulfilled” (Luke 1:38). May our prayer be similar—that His word to us would be fulfilled.
