Rekindle lost hope
Be blessed. Romans 5 vs 5 (NIV)
“AND hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.”
A few days ago I had a conversation with a remarkable old lady who shared with me some of the things she has been experiencing on a personal level; from the passing away of her spouse to the general illness in her family soon after the loss of her husband.
Amidst all her toils and the difficult emotional state she was in, she exhibited a herculean belief in GOD’s ability to correct and address issues. She boldly told me that though her offspring had been troubled by all manner of unexplainable illnesses, she had cried out to GOD to address these things that had become a burden on her life, and she remained confident that He would not abandon her or let her down. She remained confident in her faith in God and His ability.
She shared a verse with me and then departed. I was amazed at how much this elderly person still has a desire to live and serve. So many people who still have dreams to pursue and lives to lead give up on life on the pretext that their experiences have burdened them to a point where they just cannot continue. They lack the drive, desire and inclination to live, to try, and to go beyond all the walls they need to scale.
Young people decide to grow old while old people desire for youth and life, what an interesting paradox. Where are you on the journey of life? Do you see closed doors and lost opportunity or would you dare to believe again, to see rainbows and stars, to have hope, and more importantly to firmly know that the battle ahead is not yours but the LORD’s?
Even though you are here in the flesh, He is fighting for you. If only you could just believe and patiently wait on Him in the knowledge that He truly can.
Start to believe again.
