Yo! To all who are depressed and downtrodden, lacking hope and joy, struggling to overcome;
To those who feel alone, outcast, and heavy-hearted;
Hey! There is a template for success, though it lead from despair; there is a history of progress, though backward steps are plentiful; the war can be won, after losing every battle.
Now is the time of salvation, though the present is filled with pain. The present is pulled forward towards the future by events unbeknownst to you; past, present and future are twisted together towards an omega point.
God's ways are not our ways, and life is messy. Who are we to forecast the future, to understand the present, to annul the past?
God works through us towards an outcome unforeseen, unstoppable, and unimpeachable. If God be for us, who can be against us?
Never, never, never, give up.
