As we work through Step 3, we must learn to let go, and let God.
“Brokenness is a prerequisite to understanding God’s grace, but the Christian Gospel does not leave us in this state of broken despair. Easter follows Lent. The apostle Paul was blinded so he could receive true site. Jonah, Esther, Elijah, Moses, Peter, Elizabeth, David, Joseph, Anna, and virtually every other Bible hero knew the joy of God’s grace because they endured difficult circumstances and times of suffering. Redemption gives hope and meaning to fallen humans. ‘Weeping may linger for the night, but joy comes with the morning’ (Ps. 30:5).”
Mark R. McMinn
