I was on YouTube this week and came across a song. I was so encouraged by the message.
It talked about not letting go of hope and encouraged us to keep our faith in God. That’s
what I got from listening to it anyway and that is what motivated this post.
I want to remind you to keep hoping in God. No matter how difficult things get, God is
with you. There is a story that comes to mind that I would like to share.
In the first book of Kings in chapter seventeen verse ten we are introduced to a widow at Zarapheth.
She is gathering sticks to make her last meal so she and her son can eat and die. Pretty grim right.
Things are really bad for her. But Elijah the prophet comes along and asks the woman to get him
some water. As she goes to get the water, he tells her to also give him some food to eat.
She tells Elijah that she has been preparing the last meal so that her son and her would eat then die.
But Elijah tells her to give him something to eat because, God would provide for her until the rains
came down since they were in a famine.
So the woman does what Elijah says and God provides for the woman and her family for many days.
The woman was in a desperate situation but God stepped in and saved her.
With God we have hope, no matter bad the situation is.
Don’t lose heart and don’t let go of hope.
The Lord is with you and will save you from every trouble
that comes your way. And that’s my encouragement to you friends.
Blessings to you.
And here is the song I listened to:
