Life won’t always work out the way you want. Tragedies so painful will occur that you can’t bear them. And some things simply can’t be fixed regardless of how hard you try. But you can always hold onto hope. This is not wishful thinking, a dream or some sort of religious fantasy. It is reality. Absolute reality. It doesn’t matter how alone you feel, God is loving you more than you can ever imagine. It doesn’t matter how horrible things get, God is reaching out to offer you forgiveness, healing and new possibilities. It doesn’t matter how powerless you feel, God is giving you a brand new future. Sure, it means trusting when there are things you can’t control, living without having all the answers ahead of time and daring to be bold when you are afraid. But you can do it – because God is holding you every single moment of your life.
