WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE By Tammy Glover

“Why are you downcast, O my soul?  Why so disturbed within me?  Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my savior and my God.”  Psalm 42:11 NIV

When there was nothing but darkness, God created light.  When there was nothing but dust, God created man.  When there was no food, God dropped food from heaven.  When there was no place to run or hide, God parted a great sea.  That was then, but what about now?  What about my situation?

When the doctor said six months, the Lord said fifteen more healthy years.  When people said it’s impossible to find a job, the Lord said you’ll own your own business.  Whenever people said that family member would never get right and will always be a good for nothing, the Lord said that He will use that family member to spread His Word across the nations.  Whenever there is an empty womb, the Lord will create life.  When you think you won’t survive this latest battle, the Lord says it has already been won, be still. 

When you look up to the sky and all you see are grey clouds, the Lord will show you a rainbow to remind you of His promises.  He is God Almighty, there is nothing he can’t do.  He does His best work when all hope from man is gone.  Whatever  you’re going through, remember He is always working on behalf of those who love Him.  Cry if you have to, scream if you have to, but never lose faith.  To God be all the glory.

“With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”  Mark 10:27 NIV
