Written by Joy Harris, guest blogger  (Scripture Reference: Matthew 17:14-21, ESV) For countless years I have always heard the saying, “I’m stuck between a rock and hard place.” For many of us, we use this saying to articulate our unfavorable position in a trying circumstance when our options are slim to none.
