Fear

“GOD, TAKE ME ANYWHERE BUT HERE. AMEN.” You’ve probably prayed a similar prayer at some point in your life. It might have been during a season of waiting that seemed endless. Or maybe you’ve prayed this during a time of suffering or discontentment. Perhaps you’ve been in the same place for a long time and […]

My first panic attack happened last year on an airplane over to Madrid.

You’ve probably prayed a prayer similar to this at one point in your life. It might have been during a season of waiting that seemed endless. Or maybe you’ve prayed this during a time of suffering or discontentment. Or perhaps you’ve been in the same place for a long time and you’re ready to move on. “Anywhere but here” prayers are a sign of restlessness in our souls—a restlessness that can only be calmed by trusting in our sovereign God.

We can’t look to other people to find the hope that only Jesus can give us. We have all “failed” and fallen short of God’s glory. But the hope we have is this: Christ Jesus never fails.
