You fell down again. You feel empty and forgotten. You’re running from your feelings—you’re sick of the hurt you feel inside. You might be crying. You’re hurt. You’re on the ground, and the weight of the world is on your shoulders. You’re broken and you are waiting for someone to come along and decide you’re worth it to save. You don’t feel that you are, though.
Life is a fight. And you need to carry on. Now’s your chance for change, to create a new life from the one you’ve lived so long, and to discover just how strong you are inside. All the pain and hurt and anger you feel, you can take them and give them away. You can take it and give it to Christ, who took all of it on Himself to give you a chance to get back to the one place where pain and sorrow will never tear you down again.
You will make it through this. Life doesn’t start at any particular time. Life starts when you decide to give it to something bigger than yourself. Life starts NOW.
