Life Collapsing Stage | There is hope!
Oct 30, 2021
As an ex-offender, “life-collapsing-stage” is inevitable. Similarly, people going through divorce and bankruptcy, will have not much 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 plagues our mind, 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 feel that we are entrapped in. Such challenges will appear in our life. I do not know when it will happen and how, but I do know this. It will pass. The question is, will you be able to overcome the challenges and come out a stronger person? or will you survive it but leaving a trail of damaged relationships, friendships and probably yourself. These are times, we do not know where to look or how to conclude our hopeless situation. Turn to God. It worked out for me, else my life will be filled with resentment and bitterness.
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.

The Beginning | The Caffeine Experience
At the point of release, we are like a vulnerable 5-year old kid, hopeful yet fearful, happy yet frightened. If we mix with the wrong crowd, chances are that we will end back in prison, like the fate of 60% of drug-offence releases. If we have the opportunity to commune with people accepting us and encouraging us as we try to restart, we might just stand a chance; a chance not to relapse into oblivion.
