What if I told you there was a new life waiting for you? Would you be afraid to get your hopes up? Sometimes people find that life has brought them a series of let-downs, with one set back after another, and they come away fearful. No one likes to be disappointed, let alone risk the possibility of that pain being amplified through a repeat performance. Perhaps even worse is when that original pain has been self-inflicted through our own mistakes, wrong choices, and guilt. We settle for mere existence instead of true fulfillment, perhaps believing that is all we deserve, no longer holding out hope for a better day. We just look for ways to survive and forgot about what it means to truly live. God isn’t interested in leaving us in that state. He wants to heal us and set us free to experience the fullness of life.
