Finding Hope, Not Hope - So, For Your Soul
Finding Hope, Not Hope - So, For Your Soul 

"Can one walk on hot coals and his feet not be scorched?"

 Proverbs 6:28)








Cure For Your Misery


If  you talk to someone today that tells you they are

absolutely miserable,

what will you say?

Perhaps you will sympathize with what they are feeling.

You may even express your sorrow for their situation and say, "I wish I could help up you!"   


There are miserable people everywhere and it makes us wonder how they have fallen into such a deplorable state that appears impossible to rectify.

Think with me for a minute.

How do we become miserable?

If being miserable describes you, reflect of a time when you were not miserable, if you can.

When did your misery begin?

How could you have avoided this awful situation that seems to consume you? 


Consider Proverbs 6:28

"Can one walk on hot coals and his feet not be scorched?"

In other words, can we go in a wrong direction

and find a blessing?

Can we ignore God's Word about

reaping what we sow?

Consider the fact that going in the wrong direction

always produces, sooner or later,  some kind of misery

that will not be pleasant. 

It could even produce death.


Perhaps you have strayed from reading

God's Word. Or perhaps you have never read it.

God is the one who made you

and He is the one who knows you

and knows how to take care of you.


"Praise, O servants of the Lord,

Praise the name of the Lord!

Blessed be the name of the Lord

From the rising of the sun to its going down

the Lord's name is to be praised."




 God in His infinite love extends to each of us everything that we need every day. And what rebellion is it that we do not regard His goodness, but wrap ourselves in all kinds of bad behavior?   


Think about making a change in your thought life.


How about shifting your behavior

and your focus upward and not downward?

away from yourself and focus on the Sovereign God?How about doing something good for yourself for once!

How about reading your Bible, believing His Word?

How about praying that God will help you to

turn from a life of depression and torment

and focus upon Him?


"With God all things are possible"

Matthew 19:26
