Some weeks are harder than others. Some days it seems no matter how much you pray, things still don’t turn out the way you had hoped and prayed for. Some moments seem to stand painfully still when it feels like God isn’t hearing your prayers at all and heartache, anger and worry are constant companions. Some people will continue to break our hearts and make us wonder what is wrong with today’s world. These are the weeks, days and moments when hope can seem fainter and fainter. Sometimes it honestly feels like evil is always winning, faith goes unrewarded and good guys really do finish last.
These are the weeks, days and moments when we have to keep choosing to lean on God the most, even when it seems futile. These are the times we need to hang tight to God’s promises and not let circumstances or people steal our hope, peace and joy.
These are all the times when we have to trust God to do the work only He has the power to do and in Him find the courage and bravery every day to keep taking the next step. Even when we have no idea where we are going or what He has planned. Even when the journey is hard and the road is long.
My friend shared a verse with me this week that I so needed to hear. If you’re having a hard moment, day, week, or year, maybe it will ease your mind today too. Maybe as it did for me, this scriptural promise will remind you to keep being brave and to not let go of the hope that God sees and is always working behind the scenes for the good of those who love Him. Keep believing in His faithfulness.
“The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right; his ears are open to their cries for help. But the Lord turns his face against those who do evil; he will erase their memory from the earth.” Psalm 34:15-16
If you’re struggling with feeling hopeless today and your heart is sad, you’re not alone and there is always hope. We just have to choose to embrace those promises.
