not hopeless

“But anyone who is alive in the world of the living has some hope; a live dog is better off than a dead lion.”

Stay This Way
by Jason Castro

“Just because you’re broken
Doesn’t mean you’re hopeless!
Go ahead and turn the page;
Don’t be afraid of better days…”

not abandoned

“Those who know your name trust you because you have not abandoned any who seek you, LORD.”
~ Psalm 9:10 Common English Bible (CEB)

This scripture is talking about more than knowing how God would like to be referred to… it talks about knowing God’s character. In a prayer to God Almighty, King David was proclaiming that those who know your character will trust in you.

“Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.”
~ Jeremiah 33:3 ESV

“There are times in our life when we don’t know the direct outcome of our prayers, and the enemy wants us to think that God didn’t hear us or didn’t care. This is never the case, of course, even if we don’t see immediate answers or the outcomes we anticipate.”

“Trust in Him at all times, you people;
Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us.”
~ Psalm 62:8 New King James Version (NKJV)

A brief examination of this verse reveals a connection between “trust in God” and “pouring out our hearts” to Him in prayer. As with many aspects of faith, it’s a process: as I choose to trust God, I pour out my heart to Him. And as I pour out my heart to Him — take refuge in Him — my trust in Him grows.

Maybe It’s OK

Maybe It’s Ok
by We Are Messengers

If I didn’t know what it hurt like to be broken
Then how would I know what it feels like to be whole
If I didn’t know what it cuts like to be rejected
Then I wouldn’t know the joy of coming home

Maybe it’s ok if I’m not ok
‘Cause the One who holds the world is holding on to me
Maybe it’s all right if I’m not all right
‘Cause the One who holds the stars is holding my whole life

Hear the whole song and read the lyrics:

may He give you all you need

“…may He equip you with all you need for doing His will. May He produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to Him. All glory to him forever and ever! Amen.”

may you have life abundant

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
~ John 10:10 New International Version (NIV)

What did Jesus mean when He promised an abundant life?
Unlike a thief, the Lord Jesus does not come for selfish reasons. He comes to give, not to get. He comes that people may have life in Him that is meaningful, purposeful, joyful, and eternal.
