We have reached the seventh month of the year and the only positive thing many can say is that we have made it this far at least. With everything going on in the world we still breathe on.
For the majority it has been a year of pain, loss and doubt. Finding our feet has just become the only thing we strive for, the only thing we focus upon. 2020 has been the worst year for a lot of people all for mainly the same reasons. It is understandable if you would like to wish this year to end, for this nightmare to be over.
It’s the darkest before the dawn. It may even get worse for some. But what I have heard many have said is that it will get better, there is a dawn. The only thing we can do is to remain hopeful. Hopeful in the fact that it will get better, that we may socialise in a way that does not restrict us from personal contact.
As President Snow says in the Hunger Games: “The only thing stronger than fear is hope.” You may be experiencing trials and tribulations but with hope you can endure, without it you may surrender and end up in a worse place than during these challenges.
“You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.” – Michelle Obama
“Hope lies in dreams, in imagination, and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality.” – Jonas Salk
Hang in there, keep hoping.
You may feel alone at this point of time. Wishing you could see friends and family, you may feel forgotten. But have you forgotten about God watching, waiting and listening to your voice. He is saying “I’m right here, anything you need can be given to you for it belongs to me. Nothing is too great for I am the great I am. I am the comforter in times of hardship and pain.”
Hang in there. Don’t forget what you need to do and always keep on hoping.
