Have you ever had a time in your life when you didn't have the strength to go on? When it was hard living day to day or even minute to minute was too much to ask. I've been there. To the world I had it made. I had 2 teenage children, a home, car and job. People cared about me. The only thing was I felt betrayed by God, because he allowed me to be brutally date raped and a week later I lost my job due to budget cuts. On the outside I was happy, but every day I died a little more inside. After the rape I bought a small hand gun to protect my family, but in my depressed state one night I sat with the gun under my chin telling God I wanted to die. I prayed, but instead of death, he let me fall asleep.
When I woke up I thought of my precious children and how selfish it would be to end my pain only to cause them so much more. I tell you this, because as hard as it was to keep going, I would go through every pain and heartache again to be where I am now. I know now God does love me. I know that this life is unfair and good people suffer like you are now. I know that Satan is fighting for your soul as he did mine. Never Surrender!
You hold on and don't let Satan win. The world is cruel and unfair, but you can trust a God who loves you unconditionally. He'll give you strength to endure each day when you focus on him and will send you signs to show you he is there. As devastating as my life was then it was God who showed me how to look through the pain and see Jesus cheering for my victory. Let him hold you now and give you his peace.
