The Glory in Powerlessness, Helplessness, and Hopelessness



We sometimes find ourselves in a space where hope seems faint and we feel like help is nowhere near. In these moments, prayer seems dry as we watch everything fall apart. We try hard to “keep the faith” like how we were taught but the reality around us points to doubts and despair. But a deep trust in God turns powerlessness into an opportunity for His power to come through. It gives us the ability to rise above a seemingly hopeless situation.

This one-day online retreat explores how God moves where powerlessness, helplessness, and hopelessness seem to dominate. This retreat offers some spiritual insights and practices that can encourage us to face an uncertain future with God’s grace and guidance.
