We all have those days where we feel like we would rather shut ourselves off from the world and throw the biggest pity party ever. So what do you do?
Here’s a little piece I wrote. I hope it encourages you.
What do you do when you feel like the walls around you are closing in?
Everything that could possibly go wrong has gone wrong
It isn’t in your nature to quit.
It isn’t in your nature to give up.
The questions that attempt to keep me down have a field day with in my thoughts
I’ve been taught by the strong women around me to fight.
Push through the feelings and keep moving.
So what do I do when I don’t want to listen to the still small voice in my head?
What do I do when it feels like it would be easier to step away or run away and be done with life on a whole?
What do I do when I don’t feel to pray?
What do I do when I’d rather sleep all day than be productive?
What do I do when the questions are greater than the answers?
What do I do when I’ve lost hope in myself?
What do I do when I’ve given up on there being a brighter tomorrow?
What do I do when everyone who said they would stay by me has left?
What do I do when I’ve run out of hope?
What do I do?
What do I do?
If I look up there is hope.
If I get up there is strength.
If I hold on to the promises that God has made for me I have peace.
If you’ve ever felt like there was no hope for the situation you’re facing I’m here to tell you that there is.
It isn’t cliche to rely on the hope that is found in true relationship with Jesus; it is a fact.
Jesus loves you.
He is there for us when we call on Him.
He is a sure thing.
Don’t be afraid to admit that you need help.
Don’t let fear stop you from being bold, to call on Jesus.
May your feelings of hopelessness diminish and turn into feelings of hopefulness.
