Dear Weary Soul
Whatever you do don’t stop reading this article. I know you’re overwhelmed. I know you don’t know how much more you can take. I know you just wish all the pain and suffering would immediately come to an end. I know you’re just desperate for relief, comfort and peace.
How do I know? I was right where you are for the longest time. For over 3 years straight I felt I was just one step away from totally losing it all. Just six months ago my wife asked “don’t you think you can get any better?” As tears ran down my heartbroken face I said what I never had before. “No, they can’t get any better. I’ve done everything I can to overcome my condition. Nothing has changed and nothing more will change.” We both laid in the bed that night feeling hopeless about the situation.
All I could do was keep the faith that God would hear my cries for help. That God would somehow intervene and save the day. I’m here to tell you that God did. I finally gave it all up to Him and kept doing all I could do to be faithful daily.
Hope has come! Peace and comfort now resides with me day and night. I’m so thankful for the struggle because it helped me see firsthand the power of my savior. My friend the same God who intervened for me will do the same for you. Don’t give up! Just continue to keep giving it up to a God who cares and will see you through this valley.
