Desperate Times

Have you ever encountered a need beyond your ability to meet?  There’s no way around it; you can’t fix it; you can’t make it go away; you have no means to make it better; you are in a helpless predicament.  Those are desperate times!  But desperation is not all bad, for it drives us to God.  The Bible is packed with accounts of those who encountered desperate times.  They will serve to help us see what God is up to in our times of desperation, and we’ll learn how to encounter God in these most distressing times.
