You thought you had hope, 
until tragedy took over.
You thought life was in control, 
until it erupted into chaos.
You assumed you were strong,
until you were suddenly brought to your knees.
You thought you walked by faith,
until you found yourself consumed in the darkness of despair
Hope is gone.
You’re facing circumstances in life that seem
 insurmountable, even for God.

We quickly realize that our problem 
isn’t that we haven’t trusted God,
but that we trusted God 
and believed He’d come through . . . and He didn’t.
He could have prevented our pain and suffering,
but He chose not to.
We cry out,
 but there is no answer and our faith takes a tragic turn.
But God’s silence is not His solution 
and His absence is not His answer.
His goals are eternal, not earthly.
You want a way out . . . He’s making a way through.
You crave comfort . . . and He brings you to the Cross.
It is there that we realize:
we can’t deliver ourselves from a crisis
that God himself has orchestrated.

God is taking you on a journey of faith,
 and hope is just a step away . . .
but a step in the right direction takes you right through the valley.
And it is there, where all hope seems gone
that God takes your faith places you never knew it could go.
He’s teaching you to trust Him through 
your doubt and in your fears.
He’s growing your faith and showing you 
that you can trust Him . . .
even when there is no evidence that you should.
