This past weekend I had one of my Facebook followers reach out to me in despair. It was evident that she believed in God but was at a low moment. Somehow God led her to the Daley Word Facebook page. By the end of our encounter, her faith in God was strengthened and I was blessed with a new friend.
Why Would Someone Lose Hope if They Believe in God?
I have some friends who believe that people who lose hope are either weak or they don’t believe in God. Here are some things I would like to remind my friends and those of you who think that way:
- You don’t know someone’s situation. Remember the saying about walking a mile in someone else’s shoes?
- Learn to show empathy to someone’s situation.
- When you are in a dark place, it feels hopeless.
One last thing…even Jesus cried out in despair.
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
Matthew 27:46 KJV
