Dear Child of God,
I steal hope from you. And without hope, you are powerless, burdened, and ashamed. You are broken. You stare blankly into my eyes, and all you see is your fear staring back at you. That fear breeds an emptiness that aches so deep in your soul that you can’t see a way out. You FEEL defeated. You FEEL alone and worthless. But that’s not truth. You do not have to be enslaved to that fear and emptiness. God has better plans for you. Down in the deep of depression, the best and most precious gift that He gives is hope. And with God, there is always hope. Child of God, don’t surrender your gift of hope. You are worth so much more. God has great plans for you. He gives you, just as you are, a hope and a future.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
