Are you convinced that no one cares, that no one can help you, hear you, or heed your call? If you know the feeling, you aren’t alone. I don’t mean you aren’t alone in knowing the feeling. I mean you aren’t alone, my friend. That raw, dark sense of isolation and powerlessness? It’s not here to stay. If you think it’s up to you and you ain’t much, John the apostle has some stories for you to ponder. He interwove a tapestry of miracles that were “written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name” (John 20:31).

That’s God’s goal for you: life! Life-giving belief. Abundant, robust, and resilient faith. We find strength beyond our strength. We see solutions beyond our wisdom. Remember, friends, you are never alone.
