Message Summary
We have all gone through times when we wondered if we could make it even one more hour. We have all been on the verge of a breakdown, but where did you seek refuge? Did you withdraw and suffer alone? Did you turn to a friend or loved one for help? Join Pastor Al Pittman as he sheds light on how we can experience a breakthrough in the midst of a breakdown by relying on our faith in the Lord, being broken before Him, and having intimate times prayer and fellowship with Him. Through His presence in the life of every believer, He has already given us all that we need to successfully transition from breakdown to breakthrough.
