Life is Never Hopeless
If we have Jesus as our Savior, and God's Word to turn to, we have hope!
Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me (following Me as My disciple) for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls. For My yoke is easy (to bear) and My burden is light. ~Matthew 11:28-30
When life seems hopeless, mundane, or overwhelming, instead of turning to what is temporary (food, shopping, drinking, videos, games, . . .), turn to the One who's love for you is so great He sent His son to die for you. God is always there, any time of the day or night and anywhere to hear your prayer. Open the Bible, His letter to us; in it you will find hope and peace. Turn to the family of believers, be there for each other. Sometimes just turning away from our own troubles to be a help to someone else, gives us the different perspective we need. Be available to help, listen, or do whatever is needed. Smile, say hello, be ready, you never know when you might be the help someone is desperately looking for today.
