Do you ever have periods in your life where it feels like everything around you is dying and that death is hurting you too?
Time is flying by for everything around you. The passing time is working it's inevitable results, and your surroundings are fading away.
The death that surrounds you seems to be sucking the life out of you as well. No matter how hard you struggle to get your head above the water, it pulls you under once again. You start to take in water, the cold liquid rushes in your mouth and causes you to sputter. The added weight only makes you sink more.
You start to wonder, "Is there even hope in this situation? Will I ever get out? Will I die here?"
And it is hard to remember that there is hope.
But please, please hang in there.
You are loved and things will get better.
God promises better days (Romans 8:28).
The rain will come, and you will be refreshed.
