“We had a Philippians 4:11 year,” writes JULIA ATTAWAY of New York City. “One in which we've had to find contentment in all kinds of difficult circumstances.” She notes that there's value in having to dig deep—and then deeper—to find God's presence and light. “Every now and then I still find myself praying, `Please let some of this be over already!' But I've learned that a strong relationship with God doesn't depend on getting to the other side of a hardship. I have to, and want to, love Him at every moment, in every situation. Figuring out how to do that is ongoing work.”
