One thing I have come to understand is that “No matter how low a person is in life – There is always hope.” Many times in life we have to get to the very end of ourselves before we will reach out to God. When anyone reaches out for help…..God is always there. I have never witnessed someone truly reach out to God for help with a sincere heart that did not see God give them miracle breakthroughs in their life. Never! The bible is true when it says “God is close to the broken hearted”. God understands what we are going through when we are in a trial or suffering. He understands it better than we do. He sees us through eyes of love and compassion and wants the best for us. God will not force his will on us but when we are ready, he will always be there to help us. He created you for great things. He has great plans for your life. No matter what you are going through….. “There is always hope”. So just reach out.
I love the start of new things. The fresh start of a new week, a new month or a new year. It is a chance to shake off the old negative things that hinder us. It’s a tough world we live in down here. It’s ugly, it’s dark. Did I mention that it is tough? Of course we all know it is. We have a lot to fight down here. We fight a dark world, a real enemy of our souls and ourselves. We do have an understanding God that helps us through it all. He is there to guide us. He is there to answer our questions when we will sit still and listen. He is there to heal us when we are truly ready for him to take over. He is there with compassion to help us deal with our failures and weaknesses. He whispers that it will be ok because he has overcome this world and he knows the end of your story. The bible says that God’s mercies are new every morning. That means his grace is there to refresh our every morning, our every week, our every month and also every year. So we now have the opportunity to let go of all of the negative things that have tried to hold us down. We can drop them at the foot of the cross and be strong in his grace. We can start fresh. We can make it through this. We can stand tall with our head held high because we are loved and his mercy is new again.
