Don't Give Up Hope
A short message by Dr. Mary Starr
Life is hard but Hold On!
My friend Sarah opened the door to her home that had days before been burned almost completely. I will never forget that smell. They lost everything material they owned including their family dog. But they survived along with their children, and although she was in shock she was holding on to something greater than her.
Johnna had bottomed out. All her retirement she had been living on was gone, she was forced to move back in with her ex-husband, she had nothing but a part time job that paid her sporadically. Yet she was not defeated, she held on. She knew deep down she would not only survive she would thrive.
Sean had everything, an amazing job, a new baby, a wonderful wife, a huge quarter of million dollar home, a new truck. Everything until one day it happened. He lost his job, benefits, and retirement. But unlike many others who would let this devastate them he didn't. He stayed positive and held on to Faith.
I remember that day in my own life when my family was ripped apart by lies and deceit. The hardest day of my life but something inside of me gave me the strength to push forward and go on.
Today I understand that that strength to move forward, go on, keep living even when everything around falls is really a strength greater than all things. It is FAITH.
I pray that you will find that FAITH not just when you need it but everyday. It makes life not just bearable but marvelous.

I appreciate you,
