Jacob and the Angel

Life brings us joy and pain. It presents us with challenges that we would not choose and sometimes leaves us wounded. Jacob was wounded - and blessed - at the same time when he wrestled with the angle. His hip was broken, and he was anointed the father of Israel.

Was there a time in your life you were left weak and wounded by a challenge or loss?

Did you receive unexpected gifts as a result of that experience?

How did that experience change your future?
