When all seems lost…

Dear Readers,

Have you ever felt like everything has gone wrong, and it couldn’t get any worse than it already has? Well don’t worry, I am pretty sure that every human being on this planet that has ever lived or ever will has or will have felt like that at some point. We all feel deserted or lost, or even hopeless at some point. It’s part of being human. There’s nothing to be ashamed of. It happens to all of us. The thing is, is that God is ALWAYS there. even when we feel more empty and alone then ever before, God is with us, giving us a giant hug and telling us that’s it’s going to be all right. When you feel like all hope is gone, and all is lost, what do you do? I encourage you to share with me, and others in the comments.

“When all seems lost and all seems for naught, just look to the sky above.” When I’m upset I like to go outside and be by myself. We live 11 miles from the nearest town, so at night you can see the stars as clear as if they were out your back door. You can see the milky way weaving it’s way through the sky. You can see the infinite majesty of our Father’s Creation. I will look up with tears in my eyes asking God why He has brought whatever it is that had happened upon us, and then, looking at those stars, looking up into that infinite sky, and suddenly, my problem doesn’t seem as bad as it did before. I feel as if God’s reaching down and embracing me in His warmth. So when you get upset, or even mad. Just go outside, and look up, and ask God to borrow some of His infinite patience. And I’m sure that He will help you out in one way or another.

  1. I sometimes feel that we suffer about things because we have forgotten how much we have to be thankful for. Like a reminder to wake up, look at the glorious heavens, see that we are a tiny speck in creation, our problems surely can’t be that serious. If we have anyone that loves us, a roof over our heads and food to eat, we are blessed beyond imagination. That’s just the beginning of my list, how about you?

    • Same here! It would take a long time to count all our blessings, and yet we tend to choose to ignore all we are blessed with and think about all the things that are going wrong. It’s hard, it’s very hard to focus on the things God wants us to focus on, but with a little practice, and a lot of help from God, we can change the way we think about things. This is really important, for everybody, and all us Christians I’m sure need to work on it, including me. Thank you for commenting! Have a wonderful, wonderful day!
