Subject: Re: Quitting
First of all it is good to hear from you my friend, it has been awhile. Thank you asking about me I am doing okay all things considered while I’ve had better days I’ve also had worse ones as well too. Not a day goes by but at some point I take a few minutes to honor God and many blessings I have enjoyed over the course of my life. But that’s enough of me.
As I was reading your email it reminded me of the different times in my life when I wanted to quit, so I know well what you are going through. And I know it is very easy for me to tell you life is never hopeless even though the absence of hope can be and is very intimidating but for someone groping in the dark territory of hopelessness no light shines.
Stumpie, I know you’re boned tired, I know you’ve come to the end of your rope, I know you want to just sit down on a log and let the world go by and quite frankly that is just what you need to do. However, while you’re sitting there here’s something to think and pray about. “Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, Until these calamities have passed by. I will cry out to God Most High, To God who performs all things for me. He shall send from heaven and save me; He reproaches the one who would swallow me up. Selah, God shall send forth His mercy and His truth.” (Psalm 57:1–3, NKJV)
If you’re like most people who find themselves groping in the dark they blame the darkness on whatever is crushing them and in your case the difficulties robbing you of the light of hope. However, the good news is the Shadow of God’s Hope hovers over you so never forget where there’s a shadow there is a Light, the Light of Jesus. I know there are a lot of differences between us Stumpie but not only do we share our belief in God but because of our mutual belief in God we also share faith together. And another thing we have in common is we all face difficulties and adversities unique to our own lives and circumstances and because of our common belief in God and our belief in faith we can support each other through prayer and encouragement.
I am sure at one time or another you’ve heard the phrase, “If you have Jesus you have all you need.” And I believe that with all my heart, but I also know we need each other as well.
Until next time my friend…
God’s favor and blessings,
Believe in presence of the GOD and in the strength of his GRACE!
GRACE and PEACE,
