Is there hope? Should we just give up? THERE IS HOPE WITH JESUS AS LORD!

“My slanderers pursue me all day long; many are attacking me in their pride.

When I am afraid, I will trust in You.

In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust;

I will not be afraid.

What can mortal man do to me?”

 Psalm 56: 2-4

PLEASE, I SAY AGAIN, PLEASE,

READ THESE WORDS BY REV. NOUWEN,

AND PLACE YOUR HOPE AND FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS!

From Fatalism to Faith  by Rev. Henri Nouwen

“We are always tempted with fatalism. When we say, ‘Well I have always been impatient; I guess I have to live with it,’ we are being fatalistic.  When we say, ‘That man never had a loving father or mother; you shouldn’t be surprised that he ended up in prison,’ we speak as fatalists.  When we say, ‘She was terribly abused as a child; how do you expect her to ever have a healthy relationships,’ we allow fatalism to overshadow us.  When we say, ‘The wars between the nations, the starvation of millions of people, the AIDS epidemics, and the economic depression all over the world all prove that there is little reason for hope,’ we have become victims of fatalism.

Fatalism is the attitude that makes us live as passive victims of exterior circumstances beyond our control.

The opposite of fatalism is faith. Faith is the deep trust that God’s love is stronger than all the anonymous powers of the world and can transform us from victims of darkness into servants of light.”

THE LOVE OF CHRIST JESUS IS STRONGER THAN ANYTHING IN THE WORLD!
