When it seems that Lazarus has died in Jesus’ absence, Martha confronts Him in her crisis. In the midst of her world coming apart, she lets her guard down and confesses her faith in Jesus.

Sometimes it takes a crisis for us to let go and let God. Powerlessness is both frightening and liberating. Sometimes faith, in God is all we have to hold onto.

O Holy Spirit, catch me when I fall and fail. May my crisis be transformed by grace into an opportunity to rely anew on You.
