The Dire Straits: A Time for Mourning HD
The biblical calendar is packed with events and times of the year that those of us on the Gregorian calendar have no knowledge about. The three week interval of time that began this year on July 23rd is called the dire straits. This is a time of intense mourning for what might have been if only the children of Israel had demonstrated more faith in God. It is a time of introspection as each person examines their relationship with God. It is a time of repentance and return leading to hope and confidence that God never abandons His people.
