Did you ever feel spiritually beat up? I don't know about you, but I don't always recognize the things going on around me as spiritual battles.
We all experience good things and bad things, but sometimes it seems like the bad things are pounding us from all sides and it's hard to get a peaceful moment.
Yes, our Rock is Jesus and yes, He gives great peace and yes, He really is a shelter in our storms. Why, then, do we not run to Him immediately when we face these storms?
Why do we wait until we can bear it no longer, until the confusion is clouding our vision, until the pain reminds us of our weakness, until the temptation is so strong that we can't overcome it?
