Life is hard, and all of our experiences are kept in our subconscious. This is extremely hard to process and “shake,” if we ever fully can. Though we cannot do this alone, He can help us heal. There is much to heal from daily. We do not need to lose hope, for God is greater than he who is in the world causing much of this suffering. Our hearts and minds are God’s, not the enemy’s.
1. Do we let life continually get us down in a spiral loop of endless negativity, sadness, and despair?
2. Do we remember that there is hope for healing in even the most intense and agonizing mental, psychological, and spiritual pain? That God’s power and He, Himself, is with us at our very worst?
Challenge: The world is hard, very hard, indeed. Let us remember that He has overcome the world and created the world. He is infinitely more powerful than the world and the ruler of it. We are His, even when we forget it. Remember to lean on Him in the midst of your worst sadness and despair, and He will renew your strength, spirit, and mind. Each and every day we rely on Him. Amen.
