In the process of recovery from PTSD, depression, or addiction, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and discouraged in the layers of pain and problems of our lives. And worst case scenarios can dominate our minds, compounding the issues we need to sort and heal. We worry about our kids, our finances, and our relationships. Projecting our future based on our current pain dooms us from the start.
So, when we start feeling hopeless, it’s good to remember to surrender each day, each moment of fear into the hands of God. Because when we empty our tired hands into His infinite strength and grace, His love will have its way with us. And one day at a time, our hearts are knit closer to His, and hope replaces discouragement.
There’s a peace takes root in the leading of our true Healer and Savior – Jesus Christ. And no matter what our history tells us, He can make us overcomers. No matter what.
