There are days when the Word speaks louder and more clearly than any words I can find. So I offer you these honest words of Hope from long ago, written by an author who experienced deep woes and pain on the way to rock bottom, yet was still able to find comfort and strength through hoping in God.
“I’ll never forget the trouble, the utter lostness, the taste of ashes, the poison I’ve swallowed. I remember it all—oh, how well I remember— the feeling of hitting the bottom. But there’s one other thing I remember, and remembering, I keep a grip on HOPE: God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out, His merciful love couldn’t have dried up. They’re created new every morning. How great Your faithfulness! I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over). He’s all I’ve got left.”(Lamentations 3:19-24 MSG)
