When You Find You’re Afraid to Hope
When life has dealt one brutal blow after the next, after still the next, and circumstances might finally be looking up a bit but you’re afraid for them to, because the next blow will almost certainly follow—be kind to yourself.
Don’t get down on yourself when you find you’re afraid to hope. Your Maker knows your frame, and he is so gentle. Rather than muscling your way to a labored faith for better things, lean your life into his love and let his tenderness gradually heal you toward remembering how to hope again. <3
