A little sleep, a little slumber,
      a little folding of the hands to rest,
and poverty will come upon you like a robber,
      and want, like an armed warrior.
[Proverbs 24:33-34 NRSV]

These words have special meaning to me. I’ve had it happen. It was a long way down, into the pit, as it were, and the Lord found me when I hit bottom; wherein was the long climb out of it. If you don’t watch out, the rabbit hole goes surprisingly deep. But understand that the Lord is there, wherever you may land. Verily, I might not have found him, in fact, had I not been knocked down from the false heights I had been cruising. Was it worth it? Yes, now that it is long over. But I definitely would not have thought so during the struggle.
