“Where then is my hope—who can see any hope for me?” Job 17:15
Are you struggling to breathe under the weight of your pain? Is your soul weary and depleted of all hope? Do you long to disappear and escape the darkness?
If so, you are not alone. Suffering does not discriminate. Even the strongest people find themselves in pits of despair. Whatever you are facing, there is no shame. You are loved right where you are—with all of your mess and all of your pain.
But before you refuse to hope any longer, would you take a few minutes to consider that maybe, just maybe, there is reason to continue fighting? Life might very well have thrown you the very worst it has to offer. Your pain might be far greater than anything I’ve experienced, and I’ll never pretend that everything is going to work out perfectly in this life. But if you think there’s nothing left to hope for today, would you give me just a moment of your time?
