How to face your darkest hour.

DSCN0479How do you face your darkest hour?

You may be having some dark hours at the moment. How are you facing them?
There is a powerful English proverb which says, “The darkest hour of the night is just before dawn.”
Perhaps, you feel abandoned at this moment; rejected; jilted. Perhaps, the world seems to be coming to an end. Perhaps, you seem to be at the end of the rope in your aspirations. Perhaps the future looks dark for you.

How are you handling things?

You might despair and want to give up hope; or to end your life. DSCN0485
Look! There is no reason for that. The best might be right at the corner. As the English say, “The darkest hour of the night is just before dawn.”
Print this firmly on your mind. God will never abandon you. He will always stand by you. All you need is belief; faith in Him; faith that He will not fail you, because He never fails in his promises.New pictures 583

If you are living comfortably where you are, not everybody is doing same.
There are billions who are suffering; having it hard; whose hearts are torn by sorrow, fears, and worries.
There are billions who have been rejected in love; who are suffering in their marital homes. SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES
There are billions who are being cheated, exploited, deprived of their rights, unjustly treated, unjustly penalized; unjustly jailed.
There are billions who have been sick for years with no hope of ever recovering.
There are millions who know they will die soon; who know their days SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESare counted; and who feel tortured by that.
There are billions, who are experiencing excruciating pain; who are on the run being hunted; who know that if captured they would be killed.
We must pray for these people. They need our prayers. Let us storm Heaven with our prayers for them; that what is torturing them may turn into their greatest blessing.
If you are one of such people, do not despair; be strong. God is real. His promises are real. He has made a strong promise to us: “I will never leave you; I will never abandon you.”
DSC_0000183No matter how dark the night might be, draw strength from this promise. Jesus assures us, “I am the light of the world…Whoever follows me will have the light of life and will never walk in darkness.”
Thus, even in the worst circumstances, there is hope. When times are at their worst go to this great reservoir of strength to meet the challenges at hand. With enough faith in God you are invincible.
“Everything is possible for the person who has faith” (Mark 9:23).

  1. Thank you so much. Many people try to discourage me from my dream to see Israel restored to the original faith of the apostles. I believe this is my calling. I believe this is what God has given me to do. But the church, people, everyone around me just laughs in my face. sometimes I get so angry. I said to God today…why did you create me?

  2. He will never abandon me, He will never abandon me He has written my name on the palms of His hand Never will abandon me!

  3. I say wow too! I’ve faced some dark hours too: husband divorced me and took my children away. Thinking that my children were lost and there was no hope and consequently wanting to end my life. Being alone in my faith after my husband decided he would hate me and became my enemy. And I’ve felt totally alone sometimes, thinking that even God dumped me. But he didn’t. Thanks for the great reminder that God still cares.

  4. Wow! You put it wonderful, its a great article. I have learned that trusting in God and doing your best is one way to face your darkest hour. Well, doing your best is not just enough, your best really has to be our best. Many are the people who tell others they are doing their best when they themselves are convinced that what they say is not true. The Bible says in Proverbs that we …we may make our plans but God judges our motives. The question overriding question becomes is your best alined with God’s plan for you?

    Doing your best equally means mustering the enthusiasm and courage within to move ahead. Many are those who fear risks, who don’t want to venture to unknown grounds, those are the people who resign to the fate of the darkest hour. I have learn that the darkest of your hours has lessons you need to draw on and move on in a better way. I have been through really dark hours and each time I use them as learning opportunities and thus I cover new grounds each time I face another one.

    Be blessed as you set out to live your darkest hours with revitalized energy.
