In the Struggle

Dear Wrestlers,

If you ask the Nicaraguan people, especially the poor, ”How are you doing?” a common response will often contain the word ”lucha.” Lucha is Spanish for ”struggle.” The Nicaraguan poor often respond, “I am in the struggle.” It is a positive that I am wrestling with life.

“Jacob was left alone ; and a man wrestled with him until daybreak” (Genesis 32:22). After Jacob woke he walked off with a limp, but the limp’s origin was from interaction with the divine.

In your deepest human relationships be it, parent, child, sibling, colleague, friend, or spouse - each requires wrestling. Without honest courageous truth and the capacity to confront another on life’s most sensitive of issues, any relationship will reach a ceiling of potential growth.

When you go before your God, do not shy away from any topic or reality. God will offer you the courage to discuss any matter. For your God desires a relationship of depth with you that punctures any ceiling.

Prayers: Safe summer travel, thanks that the report on Bismark's daughter Dianita that her hip is cancer free, flooding, that you may wrestle with the divine.

Still in one peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
