Life Collapsing Stage | There is hope!

Written by

As an ex-offender, “life-collapsing-stage” is inevitable. Similarly, people going through divorce and bankruptcy, will have no choice but to wade through the gloom and doom period. This calamity created trench can bury us for months or even years. Energy depleting companions like Despair and Hopelessness plague our minds, even though they are our essential pillars to cling-on, as we wallow in our sorrow. Suicide routes seems to be a comparatively lighter solution to end the hellish eternity we are entrapped in. Such turmoils are inevitable and it will eventually change a person’s persona.Yes, I have experienced all the above and I can encourage anyone this. “It will pass, if not now, soon!” 
If you turn to God and don’t give up on yourself, you will eventually rise again, hopefully with valuable lesson gained. It’s not the end unless you decided it to be. The rays of morning sun will arrive penetrating through your darkest nightmares, giving birth to a new beginning, a new life.  I gave all my despair and pain to my Lord and In-exchange, He gave me a new lease of life, new friends, new mission, new meaning, new kids, new hope, and a new enterprise. #theofficialtce. Here is where I found the reason and the joy to serve, to love, to care, to support, to help, to nurture, to guide and to build, not myself but others that needed a helping hand, a second chance.  Life Crisis are not the only things that surprise us and create confusion in our lives. Not losing sight of God in the midst of misfortune, however, is one of the keys of survival, at least for me. . .

1 John 5:14-15 
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
