HOPE IN HARD TIMES
Have you ever had your world turned upside down? Perhaps you found yourself so shaken you couldn’t make sense of what was happening. Or maybe, what seemed insignificant became an insurmountable mountain. Life has a way of unexpected twists and turns. What do you do when this happens? Where do you turn?
Let’s face it. When hard times come, people blame all sorts of things, including God. We ask the “why” questions and may even begin to lose hope. But when we lose hope, it changes reality. It can diminish truth to the point we might not know what to think. Oh, but God can turn our lives right side up again! He can help us navigate what seems impossible. Our God is the God of hope and being present in the impossible. Because God loves us so much, he is always working in our situations to bring the best results out of them. As we keep our focus on God, our hope can find its way back. There is nothing or no one who cares about us more than God. Truly he is the one who holds our future when we trust him with it.
