I don’t have enough money to pay my bills! I am stuck at this dead end job! I’m in this relationship that is hurting me and I feel there is no way out! I am a single mother with no career. My close loved one just passed, they were all I had. My grades are bad, I don’t think I’m going to graduate. I just lost my job, this close from eviction. They did my so wrong and I feel my heart is broken beyond repair. I can’t trust anymore, everyone is out to use and abuse me. I was molested and raped, God cant possibly have a plan for me. Whats the point of living for tomorrow??
Can you relate to any of these scenarios? I may not have hit your situation but you very well may be in a place where you feel like There is no hope, whats the point.
As I encourage myself, I want to encourage you and tell you that life is so much more than what you currently see right now! When you are deep into something it can feel like you are in way over your head, drowning. It feels like this is all that life will ever be because that’s all that you can currently see, but its not! Right now I encourage you to have HOPE.
Hope = a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.
Hope is the ability to know and see past your current situation, to expect a better tomorrow. No matter what you are up against, understand that this is not the end of your story. God is the creator and ruler of this universe and when He put you on this earth He declared you to be good and set up a sure plan for your life.
” ‘For I know the plans I have for you’, declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart’ “. – Jeremiah 29:11-13
Do you not know that God loves you? Do you not know that your creator will not leave you in despair but will take care of your entire being, body, soul and spirit? Give your heart to Him. He desires you. As I sit and think over my life, sometimes I get caught up in thinking that nothing new is happening but the same ole same ole, but I am reminded of HOPE.
“Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.” -Probverb 19:21
I am so encouraged to know that I can’t change Gods plans for me. My momma, daddy, ex boyfriend, job, my current situation, nothing or no one has the power to change the course of life God has for me. I am more than what I see! Life is more than what I see. And I believer that. It’s time to change the lenses you have been looking through. Your view may seem dark and cloudy but God’s view is always sunny with a chance of blessing. Believe in God today. Believe in the good things He has planted in you and have hope for a better day! Only If we believe, we shall surely receive.
Encourage yourself today.
