You Are Never Alone!

Sometimes it feels like there is no end to the problems and pain that come along each day. Bills piled up. Trips to the doctor. Broken relationships. Depression. Feeling all alone. The death of a loved one. Wandering through life without any real purpose at all.

There are times when it seems like nothing makes any sense. It is during those mixed up moments when we have nothing but questions that we need to remind ourselves Who is in charge. We have not been left alone in this world. We have a loving Father that cares. His thoughts are far above our thoughts, and His wisdom is far beyond ours.

Hold on. Just when you think all hope is gone, someone or something will come into your life to remind you that you are not forgotten. A butterfly landing on your arm. A calm voice saying, “I’m your friend, and I will listen.” The moon shining to light a darkened path. The beautiful sunrise. The far off sounds of the birds singing. A rainbow bursting forth with colors following the threatening storm.

You have not been forgotten – not even for one moment. Hold on! Look for your special sign. Hope is near! --Clara Hinton

“Darkness is always followed by a glorious sunrise.” --C. Hinton

“The very hairs of your head are all numbered, therefore do not fear; you are of more value than the many sparrows.” -- Matthew 10: 30-31
