Psalm 43:5 – Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
Hang in there. There’s hope. Not everyone can handle what you’re going through, but there are those who can. Build yourself a life raft by placing a few individuals around you who can help encourage you to be who you are. Even if that means you’re in an anxiety free fall down the rapids, your friends will help you. These people will pick up your life raft’s oars and help direct you towards a peaceful inlet. God can also help you direct every area in your life. He already knows where the rapids are and where the peaceful waters are. Because there is hope, we can take the risk floating our raft down the river of blessings.
