Faith gives Hope

I am very tired lately, both emotionally and physically...

My father suffered a stroke more than a month ago and he's still in the hospital. Despite undergoing physiotherapy and acupuncture, there isn't much improvement in his condition and recently, he had to stop rehabilitation because of pneumonia. It is really emotionally draining for the family, especially my mother.

My office work is also stressful at the moment because this happens to be the busy period of the year. And not forgetting my regular church work as well as issues with the church website!

It is really difficult to see the light at the end of the dark tunnel of problems...

But thank and praise God that in prayer, He reminded me of:
- how He had helped and guided me in past struggles
- the hope of our precious faith that in all things, He works for the good of us (Romans 8:28)
- our eternal destination where He would wipe away all our tears and we would live in eternal joy with Him (Revelation 21:4)

My problems still exist... but now, I can face them with renewed vigor! Indeed, Faith gives shining Hope in the darkest of times!

Hmm good stuff man. I'm impressed with your CV, you must hold a really impressive job and have a lot of stress flung your way. I am a christian as well and am struggling with prayer and tiredness. I am also suffering from an identity crisis, I'm not sure whether I want to be an Irishman or a South African, but actually I am a Zimbabwean. Understand where I am coming from?
