“Yahweh is nigh to the brokenhearted,
and saves those who are crushed in Spirit.”
~ The Psalms
I admit: I write a lot about desperation. I write a lot about loneliness and hopelessness, especially in romance (tee-hee). I can’t deny it. It’s too obvious in my works. But I do so because as a realistic writer this is what I observe around (and, at times, within) me. I write about these things because they are what I perceive is true. What I believe is reality. Heartbreak is something we cannot escape on our own without lifting our feet off the ground and having our heads high up in the clouds.
But even though the world around us is desolate and dreary and devoured by death, I do believe that there is always, always, always hope for all and each of us. If we all just look in the right places. Can’t you see the peeping wisps of cirrus clouds tinged with orange as midnight thunderstorm recedes? The Sun is there and about to shine! (They say the darkest hour is just before the dawn.) Life gets hideous (and I guarantee it will, if it hasn’t; quite pessimistic?), but remember that you are not alone. Yes, the world betrays, but there is One who has promised that He will never, never, never leave you.
And that is our Creator, Yahweh. Do you know what He did just to prove that? It is called His Good news: the Gospel, and it is revealed in His Word.
For Yahweh so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall NOT perish, but have everlasting life.
~ The Gospel According to John
Not so long ago, around two thousand years ago, God Himself took on flesh for us. Why? Because He loves you! And if you want a fleshed out answer, please visit my friend’s page Have you Every Heard the Message of the Gospel?, and read about the story of real hope.
Yes, we are all broken, if not then at least a little. Admit it. You can’t deny it. But Yahweh is near. So I pray that you see the real hope that can only be found in Him.
