Have you ever been really desperate?
So desperate you feel you can’t breathe; that life will slip away, and tomorrow must not come; that you could end it all, and would rather die than carry on; that you will do absolutely anything to get what you desire most; that you will even beg with your enemy to save your life?
These are places of deep desperation, ripe with the promise and hope of transformation. We come to a place of desperation either out of deep pain or deep promise – a place where we want to avoid death or seek abundant life. Either way, we need the touch of God to propel us into a new dimension – which cannot be achieved on our own.
If you are in any of these places then I invite you to come on a journey with me to learn how we can grow and discover our destiny, primarily through making space for God in our lives, or, with our willingness, allowing God to make space for His work.
Paradoxically, this place of desperation is the place where God dwells in fullness.
When you feel that you have reached the end and that you cannot go one step further, when life seems to be drained of all purpose – what a wonderful opportunity to start all over again, to turn over a new page. – Eileen Caddy.
