“They were unharmed in the middle of the fire.” (Dn. 3)
Many times on his ministry journey, Jesus put himself in the middle of more than one situation; in spite of what was coming down the road, “God is greater than what resides in one’s heart.”
“The seed that is sown in good soil is like someone who hears the Word and understands it and that being bears fruit.” (Mt. 13)
When we struggle, we are called to put God in the middle of everything in our lives; our labor, our relationships, ministry, etc.
“When we pray, reflections and images often pass through our minds. We are surprised to find ourselves saying, ‘My thoughts are wandering. My heart is distracted.’ *
When we press into it, we have to put Jesus in the middle or nothing works.
“Yes, I am in the middle of it and so are you. You don’t belong in the middle, so get out.”
