Sunday Scripture

and a


"I called on your name, Lord,
    from the depths of the pit. 
You heard my plea:
  'Do not close your ears    
 to my cry for relief.'
 You came near when I called you,
and you said, 'Do not fear.' "
Lamentations 3:55-57

Each of us has been there; in the depths of the pit of despair, hopelessness, utter loss and defeat. That time of your life that could be called the dark night of the soul. 

When all we can see is darkness, instinctively we reach for the light; and that Light is God's hand reaching out to us. For even in the depths of despair, we are never truly alone. God is always with us, and He is just a breath away. 

Cry out to Him. Tell him all your fears; share your pain. Take His hand, and begin to find your way. 

When you are at your lowest, the only way to go is up. God will lift you up. Reach out to Him. Let God's love rescue you from your pain, from your sorrow. His love will light the way as you begin to find your way out of the darkness.

Trust in His love. He will lift you up.

Listen to this song of Hope from the Afters, "Lift Me Up"
