Who isn’t struggling with this winter, unless you own a ski area or oil company?! It’s been tough. It’s been hard physically and emotionally for almost everyone. And as I write this, the snow is coming down outside again. Struggles are part of life in a fallen world. We have all kinds of struggles. We struggle with life. We struggle with people. And we even, at times, struggle in our relationship with God. We see all of these same struggles in the life of Jacob this week. And while Jacob is not exactly a role model, the Lord does show us, through Jacob, that we can’t go it all alone. Mere human effort is insufficient for human struggles. So this Sunday, we’re going to look at a couple of ways Jacob responded to his struggles, which will help us respond to our own.
