Hope is a precious commodity when you’re suffering.  In fact, there are times when you wonder if you’ll ever hope again.  You will, so long as you know and believe truth of what God says about your situation.  There is an answer in the Word of God for whatever you are facing today!   It’s kinda like buried treasure but, you will find the answer as long as you seek for it. We need to know our life isn’t over, even when circumstances seem to say so.

I love how Psalm 42:1 puts it in the Message version:

1-3 A white-tailed deer drinks
    from the creek;
I want to drink God,
    deep draughts of God.
I’m thirsty for God-alive.
I wonder, “Will I ever make it—
    arrive and drink in God’s presence?”
I’m on a diet of tears—
    tears for breakfast, tears for supper.
All day long
    people knock at my door,
Pestering,
    “Where is this God of yours?”

When we feel hopeless because of the situation we are facing we need to start to rehearse the victories in our life.  Say to yourself, I remember when I faced this and God got me out, I remember when all was bleak and it looked like I was drowning BUT GOD….. pulled me up and dried me off.

Verse 5 says:

Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul?
    Why are you crying the blues?
Fix my eyes on God—
    soon I’ll be praising again.
He puts a smile on my face.
    He’s my God.

It might seem dark and all hope seems to have disappeared but remember that joy comes in the light of knowing what God has promised us and that alone will bring a smile to your face today!

Keep on standing and He will bring what you need to pass in your life and finally put a chair for you to sit on and enjoy life to the fullest!

When life is trowing some fast balls at you just remember to keep hitting, keep hoping because God is the umpire and he never calls a strike.

Blessings my dear friends!
