Pain and Hope

I know several people that are going through a lot of pain right now.

One has lost her faith and trust in someone close to her.

One has lost trust with those around her.

One has had his heart broken.

People turn to so many different things when they are in pain. Some turn inward, others turn to friends, some turn to other things.

Some turn to God.

Sometimes, people give their problems to God, and then promptly take their worries back!
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD , 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'" - Jeremiah 29:11
Jeremiah was hurt and in pain too. But God was there to truly comfort him. And like Jeremiah, God does have plans. He has plans for all of us, if we want to hear them or not. Willing to listen or not. He truly has plans to prosper each one of us. (not necessarily monetarily, but prosperity.)

Remember, it is ok to hurt. Pain is something we all deal with. Remember to share your pain with those close to you, but remember to give it to God (and let him keep it).

You have hope.
God has given you hope!
God has given you a future!
