A few years back, I was praying and the thought came to so strongly that it was almost audible; “Are you willing to accept victory?”  On the one hand it seemed like a strange question.  Who wouldn’t accept victory?  Who wouldn’t want victory from the stress that was going on in my life, at that time.  And yet, there was a strong sense of dread in the question.  It was as though the Holy Spirit was saying, “This is going to be really awful.  Are you willing to take this on my way?”...
