Monday Meditation - Hope 5/16/2022

 

I imagine that every one of us have fallen into a bit of despair (or a lot of despair) when things are not going right for you or a loved one. When we suffer a loss, like the loss of a job, or the loss of a dear friend, we can feel so hurt, and we might even wonder if there is a reason to go on.

 

Hopefully in a situation like this we end up on our knees begging God for help and mercy. Such a prayer is an honest acknowledgement of whatever situation lies before us. It shows that we care, we are not giving up on the situation, and we have hope that somehow the situation can be resolved, especially in the mercy and compassion of Jesus.

 

It is so important that we pray for each other, as well as for ourselves, in difficult situations. We may not understand why God allows things to happen, but our prayer shows that we trust in God anyway. No one is beyond hope - all is possible through prayer and faith.

 

Right now, I am praying with great hope for a dear friend of mine who is dying. She has fought a good fight, but healing seems not meant to be. I know her family is hurting right now, and I am praying with great hope that God will bring her home safely into his arms and comfort her family.

 

Today I encourage you to reflect on whether there is someone in your life who needs you to hope and pray for them. Maybe they have fallen away from God, perhaps they are suffering an illness, or maybe they are just stuck in a bad situation. I believe we are called to pray for them, not just in a casual and quick way, but rather we are called to deep and faith-filled prayer for them. Jesus is the answer to all things, and he can do all things. Surrender that person to the mercy of God today, tomorrow and every day. Do not give up but retain hope that God can bring healing and transformation of life.

 

Jesus, I hope in You.

 

Have a blessed Monday!

Faye
