There are some moments in life where it seems like there’s no way out. Your life feels like a disaster. It could be many things at once or maybe one major crisis. And in many cases, the hurt, pain, and loss are all too real.
One of the greatest messages we receive through the Gospels is hope. Even in the most difficult times, we can strive for hope. Even in the most painful loss, we can eventually gain peace again. It doesn’t mean you forget, or that your life is perfect, but you continue. You can even thrive as time passes.
Still, the hard times never go by easily. You will be tired and tested. But if you hang on tight to Jesus and his promises, the glory of God will eventually shine though.
Remember, after the crucifixion, the resurrection of Christ is eternal and real.
Trust in the Spirit. Don’t give up. Hang in there. You are worth it to God. The Lord is with you!
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
PRAYER FOR WHEN EVERYTHING IS GOING WRONG
Dear merciful Lord,
Nothing seems right in my life. Everywhere I look it’s a mess. I feel afraid and alone. And I’m tired, O Lord, so tired. What can I do? Who can I turn to?
I cry out for your mercy. I appeal to your goodness. Do not abandon me, O Lord!
Lift me up to you, bring me close. Let me feel your presence, your tender touch, your love, here and now. I need this so much right now.
Hide me in the wounds of Christ. Forgive me, O Lord, of any sin. Cleanse me and heal me. I depend on you, O Lord.
Show me how to rebuild my life. May your Spirit guide me. Let it be pure and good. Give me peace and clarity. Make my testimony strong.
No matter how bad things look now, with Jesus by my side, I will continue. I will survive. All for the glory of God.
In Jesus name,
