That night when the world rested in deep slumber,
My mind played tricks within me in numbers.
Day and date I have passed to the oblivion now
But the consequence demanded my immediate bow.
Loneliness, abandonment, hurt, hatred, low esteem had taken deep roots;
Hours of weeping and lamentation were its flourishing fruits!
Darkness had shrouded my vision and shut the doors of hope
Giving me nothing but tears to mope.
The pain within, I could no longer take
Nothing could console my heartache.
I felt like a complete colossal failure in life
Giving another chance appeared a vain strive
I therefore wanted to end it once and for all
But my plans were disrupted with a phone call
An acquaintance offered a listening ear
I spitted my frustrations for her to hear,
Then said she with a voice so calm
“Do yourself no harm!”
“The One who created you knows you by name
He can’t see you go this lame!
He will never leave you all alone
Acknowledge the love that He has always shown
Fearfully and wonderfully have you been made,
To give you life , His He had laid
You are precious to Him you now must know
Wherever He will lead you, you must go
Give all your burdens unto Him
And enjoy His love, happiness and blessings to the brim!”
Almost two years back, when I was in my first year in college, away from home for first time in life. I was having a tough time without any mental support or a friend to share my struggles with. My grades were going down and I was feeling like a complete failure in life. Feelings of loneliness, rejection, failure and pain had overwhelmed me to the point that I was planning to give up my life. One of my friends called me up and prayed for me over the phone. I felt God talking to me inter personally and saying to ‘caste all my cares and worries upon Him’ It gave me a new strength, a new hope to rise up and face challenges no matter how GIANT they be. I have found my hope in Christ alone. Even today the difficulties that I face, God gives me the courage to move on and face them. I am eternally thankful to God! I hope you find your hope in Him too.
Trust me, HE WILL NEVER FAIL YOU!
