There Is Hope for The Hopeless

Hello Everyone! It’s been a while since I last wrote. You haven’t heard from me because I have been struggling. I was feeling hopeless about the situation I am in. My Pastor would always say “don’t entertain the enemy.” Satan and his demons are always on the attack to get you away from focusing on and staying strong in the Lord. When disappointment hit, I failed to view my circumstances from God’s point of view. Instead of standing firm on God’s Word, I began to dwell on negative doubtful thoughts. These words of discouragement became a meditation in my heart, which led to so many emotions like anger and depression.  Those thoughts led me to feeling hopeless.

What got me out if this negative space, is what prevents one from getting into that mess; that is the Word of God. I became so hopeless, so tired, that I couldn’t move. This emotional exhaustion put me in the perfect place to be still, in a place where all I could do is just listen to The Word from God. The Word was there the whole time. I was so caught up in my own feelings and my own understanding of how to deal with the problem I didn’t have ears to hear. God spoke The Truth about what is going on and reminded me that I need to keep my armor on (Read Ephesians 6:10-18).

I am still in the same situation, the same place of testing. I am still going through this trial. Yet what I clearly see, know, and understand is the purpose of this process before I get my breakthrough. Lord thank you for reminding me that during this journey I need to stay focused and not lose hope or heart. Your Word and promises are true and to not let my current circumstances cause me to think otherwise.
