It seems like every day hopelessness knocks on the door. Unfortunately, we often open up and let it walk right in and take over our thoughts and emotions.  It begins a vicious cycle of pain and problems. Hopelessness is an uninvited guest who refuses to leave.

Life can be very hard.  We know that. When the difficulties don’t let up, hopelessness is always there, ready to defeat you.

Romans 15:13 (NKJV) “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

You’re reading this today, facing intense pain, heartache, or fear all over again. I want to remind you that you’re not alone. God knows what you’re going through in your hopelessness, and He wants to help you.  He will help you if you turn to Him! He is faithful in every way and loves you as His own son or daughter.

2 Corinthians 1:3–7 (NLT) “All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. The more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ. Even when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your comfort and salvation! For when we ourselves are comforted, we will certainly comfort you. Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer. We are confident that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in the comfort God gives us.”

Hopelessness can make us feel like we’re we are in a deep cave with no way out, but Jesus is always there, ready to help us if we turn to Him. He is our hope when everything else fails.  He is utterly reliable in every way.

So whatever you’re facing today, know that God loves you and wants to help you through it. Trust in Him and have faith that things will get better.

If you don’t know where to start, a simple prayer like this can help:

Dear God, I am feeling so hopeless right now. Please help me. I don’t know what to do or where to turn. Please give me Your strength and peace. Thank You for being with me in this dark time. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
