Do you ever feel hopeless? Sometimes life can be so difficult. What is it that makes you feel hopeless? Is there something really big going on in your life that seems unbearable? Is there a situation that just doesn’t seem to ever get better? Maybe it’s just the fact that you have nothing to look forward to. Whatever it is that makes you feel hopeless I am hear to tell you that we serve the God of hope. He is the answer. Life here on earth will always have trials. There is so much we can’t control. We can’t control death, other people’s choices, or the fact that life is at time unbearable. What we can control is putting our trust in God. Romans 5:2-5 says:
Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
I encourage you to look to God in your times of hopelessness. He can give you peace and the strength to endure whatever it is that you are going through. Remember to pray about all things. God LOVES to answer prayers. He is here to guide you through life. Remember also that God gives us so much to look forward to. We get to spend eternity with Him in Heaven. When we finally meet Him face to face we will never again experience pain or suffering. Life here is short so don’t lose hope. You CAN do this.
