Even though all seems dark, there will be a sunrise.
Depression, darkness, hate. Life can often feel hopeless. Is there any brightness in the future? But just as the sun rises after every dark night, Jesus’s offer of hope is forever constant.
When time began, God created everything and “saw that it was good.” He gave humanity everything. He only asked them not to eat the fruit of ONE tree. Believing the “grass was greener on the other side,” they ate the forbidden fruit. People were plunged into darkness. God would’ve been just in letting us continue down the spiral of depravity, BUT NO. Because He is good and gracious, He wasted no time in providing hope of redemption. It came in the form of His very own Son, Jesus Christ. He voluntarily sacrificed Himself, for us, so that He might bring us to God. Out of love, He made a way for our sinful hearts to be cleansed and redeemed from the power of sin and death. This is hope. And this freedom is offered to you. Jesus says, “Come. All who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” Bring your broken pieces to Him. Repent (turn away from your sin), and look to Christ. There is forgiveness that covers a multitude of sins. And it’s all because of Jesus. So, yes. There’s always hope.
