There never comes a day without challenges.  Some of them are of the nature of a pesky mosquito, while other days bring an invasion of ravenous beasts.  But, that is life in a fallen world.

It is also why God gives grace that surpasses our needs.  There is grace for the demands on us, and a bit more, so we can share with others.

Needs drive us to God.  That is not a bad thing!  In fact, the storms of life enable us to discover God as our Refuge.  We run to the shelter of His arms.

Although I can't recall who said it, I have never forgotten the statement heard decades ago, "Whatever you face today, you can always say, 'For this I have Jesus!'"
