Feeling, Hopeless, Depressed, Alone?
Hurting, desperate, ready to give up?
You are not alone in how you feel. There are many who are feeling trapped without hope of relief. But many have found comfort and hope in Jesus Christ. He has delivered them. There is hope for you too.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4, Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
God offers exactly what you need. He forgives, He comforts, and He confirms His love to you.
2 Corinthians 2:5-8, But if any have caused grief, he hath not grieved me, but in part: that I may not overcharge you all. Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many. So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow. Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirm your love toward him.
I am sorry to hear about your grief and despair. I understand what it is like to feel trapped in circumstances from which there is no escape.
I found strength in Jesus Christ, comfort in His Words, and hope in His promises.
