We all need a little more HOPE!

I know it gets hard, life is crazy and it seems like your problems are taking over your life, you can’t sleep, you can’t concentrate and no one understands. There is sickness in your mind or body and you can’t seem to catch a break, every day you are hurting or you get more bad news. I know depression is kicking in and you have days so dark you can’t see tomorrow or sometimes the rest of the day. But there is hope .. praise God there is hope.  
“This hope is like an anchor for us. It is strong and sure and keeps us safe. It goes behind the curtain.”‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭6:19‬ ‭ERV‬‬

“I pray that the God who gives hope will fill you with much joy and peace as you trust in him. Then you will have more and more hope, and it will flow out of you by the power of the Holy Spirit.”‭‭Romans‬ ‭15:13‬ ‭ERV‬‬

I say all that to encourage you. To remind you that no matter what your situation looks like God is with you. God is able to protect you from anything, he is bigger than your problems. 

“You can go to God Most High to hide. You can go to God All-Powerful for protection. I say to the Lord, “You are my place of safety, my fortress. My God, I trust in you.”

You will have nothing to fear at night and no need to be afraid of enemy arrows during the day.”‭Psalms‬ ‭91:1-2, 5‬ ‭ERV‬‬

Find a place where you can sit quietly, close your eyes, just sit there. Ok open your mind, begin to talk to God, tell him your worries, share your fears. Close your eyes, stop looking around, this is important. Close your eyes, breathe in then breathe out. No worries, no distraction. Just sit there listen for the wind, feel the air on your skin. Just breathe, in then out, in then out, quiet.shhhhhhh can you hear him, yes that is God speaking to your heart, speaking to your situation. The first few times will seem odd and may feel strange. It’s new, but it’s worth it. Whatever he tells you during these quiet times, count on it. 
“These two things cannot change: God cannot lie when he says something, and he cannot lie when he makes an oath. So these two things are a great help to us who have come to God for safety. They encourage us to hold on to the hope that is ours.”‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭6:18‬ ‭ERV‬‬
