“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.” Psalm 42:5 (NIV)

Sometimes it feels like the world is against us. Thing after thing goes wrong, and it is easy to feel like God has given up on you. Health issues, financial struggles, problems at work, difficulties in your marriage, stubborn kids; it’s enough to drive anyone to hopelessness.

I am sure you have heard the phrase God won’t give you more than you can handle. Let me tell you something, girlfriend, He absolutely will! Because those broken moments are the times where He will pick you up and give you the confidence and tools you need to push through. Then, the next time a struggle comes your way you can either conquer it with grace or God will help you grow through it! It is a beautiful cycle.

But that feeling of hopelessness won’t provide answers or solutions. Those come from above—from God the Father! Now, that’s a fact. His countenance is upon you! Rest in Him and know that He has got your back no matter what.
