There’s always hope.

Even when what I want has been crushed beneath the heel of disappointment and failure, there is hope.

Even when what I need seems to be out of reach and I feel I am falling into a pit of despair, there is hope.

Even when I am sitting in the wreckage of my own actions, there is hope.

Even when those I love betray me and pierce my heart to the very deepest depths, there is hope.

Even when the thought of a brand new day terrifies and causes anxiety and fear, there is hope.

Even when someone dear to me is taken from this world, there is hope.

Even when hope seems lost in the pain that just won’t go away, there is hope.

Even if all these things combine into a storm that overwhelms and threatens to drown me in the crashing waves, there is hope.

There’s always hope.

Psalm 39:7 And so, Lord, where do I put my hope?
My only hope is in you.

  1. Mike, forgive me if I read too much between your lines, but we are survivors because we have endured some really hopeless times and been victorious through Jesus. He will not allow us to wallow now. Keep the faith. “the Lord is my rock, my fortress.”
