We all have those moments when nothing seems to work. Everything you do ends up in failure. Nothing right you do, agrees to stay right.

At that point, it looks like you are surrounded by everything negative: people, bosses, friends, family, husband, wife, children. At that point, it looks like they don’t support you; they don’t care or are too occupied to reach out.

Even the universe seems to turn its back on you. You almost got hit by a car, you had a miscarriage, a still birth, lost a loved one, lost your job, house; nothing seems to work.

You begin to question yourself and wonder what you did wrong. ‘Is there something I could have done better?’, nothing seems to work. You are at a low place, the light at the end of the tunnel has gone out…STOP.

When nothing seems to work, you work. You are alive with hope and that is what has been keeping you; failure after failure, loss after loss, betrayal after betrayal. Hope, that things will get better. Hope, that next time you apply for a job, you will be employed. Hope, that the sun will shine again no matter how long and heavy the rain falls. Hope, that you will grope your way to the end of the tunnel and turn on the light.

When nothing seems to work, you work!!!

Keep Faith Alive.

  1. Thanks for the piece Edima! Somewhere, somehow, we’ve all been there in life. We need to help ourselves remember not to give up. It’s easier said than done though, but with God (prayer) and friends/family, we pull through.

  2. Yes, Hope is life, Hope is everything! No matter the situation, keep hope alive. When all hope is gone, life is gone. Nice Write up.
