Hope for the Hurting

Hope for the Hurting

I’ve had moments of sorrow, despair, fear,  heartbreak, and anxiety in my life. So have you, right? But I have always clung to hope, wondering what God has planned for me. When I read about the hopelessness of people who have taken their own lives or the lives of others, my heart drops and tears quickly form. I want to be honest with you: I don’t understand that total absence of hope.

How can I help these people who have reached the place of total hopelessness?

 All I know for sure is the Lord wants to help us because He is our ultimate hope.

 While every speaker, author, and maybe even your next door neighbor has an opinion about what brings us hope, I wanted to know exactly what God has to say to me in His word. After reading many verses, I believe we can be ambassadors of God’s hope to our world.

 Take time and on your own, open up His Word and look for verses on hope. Allow them to soak into your soul and pass them on to the people you love today.

When we place our hope in God, we know He will never let us down because His biggest desire is to have fellowship with us! His love for us is so deep we cannot even fathom it. He uses all things in our life to bring us to a closer, more intimate relationship with Him.

 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28

In Psalm 62:5 David reminds his soul “For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
    for my hope is from him.”

My prayer for everyone who is reading this:

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13)

With hope in my heart,
