A place to find Hope

Tag: loneliness

What are we doing Here?

This will be my first blog in over a month. There are many excuses that I can throw at you. I could even invite you to my pity party. 

I am not going to do that anymore. I am just going to write, write, write! Daily Signs of Hope is just that. I should be putting out posts that give you. I should forget my troubles and share what my hurts are and how I have overcome them. 

A year ago I was in the fast lane doing daily posts and reaching out to over 108,000 subscribers. The site crashed and left me with zero. All 108,000 are going.

I am asking you to show the hackers that they didn’t win. I am asking you to subscribe and help me build this blog back up to where it is helping people every day. Just click on the subscribe sign at the top right.It will guide you from there.

Then you will get a post in your box every time one is written, that is full compassion, love, and hope.

So, what are we doing here today. What meaning is there to life. Is there a reason why I was born? 

It is near Christmas time. It is supposed to be a time of joy and happiness. Not all people feel that way. Some don’t have what others take for granted. Examples could be: No home, Job, health insurance, or family. There are many more some people are facing, but I am pretty sure you get the picture. 

So, what can we do to help stop that?

I have thought about this for several months. What on earth can I do to reach out to those who are suffering?  

  1. If it is a neighbor who is suffering. Call them and give them some kinds words. Go to them just to talk and be a friend.
  2. Check the senior centers in your area. There are seniors there every day who have no one to talk to, or be friends with. An hour from you being with them can give them hope. 
  3. There are more and more assisted living homes in our areas. That is a place that is oozing with people have have been left and forgotten. I know because my mother was int one before she passed. I was there every day to cheer her up, but as I looked around there were so many who were just sitting in a corner looking sad. CHEER THEM UP!  
  4. Send a letter to someone you know is hurting. It can be short but loaded with hope. Getting a letter can brighten anyone’s life. 
  5. You finish making this list. I am sure, by now you have thought of some other things you can do. ENJOY!

Some other thoughts I have come up with this week are: Everyone seems to greet you with “Happy Holiday!” What does that mean to you? Saying Happy Holiday, literally, means Holy Day. Christmas is not a Holy Day. It is the birth of Jesus Christ. A common man who was a carpenter. Never really had a home. He lived with believers. 

Speaking of Jesus Christ…think about this. As a mother or father, how would you feel if your only son was dead at 33? That sounds very sad, but Jesus was crucified when he was only 33 years old.  I can’t imagine the torment I would be feeling if I watch as they hung one of my son’s up on a cross to die, and yet Jesus didn’t thinking of us. He did it for us so that we can have eternal life. 

Now I am speaking right at you. Yes you! 

Never feel alone. Never assume no one cares for you. Never hide from the world because you feel you have no self worth. I love you! I really do. If you need special help fill out the comment section, and I will pray for you. 

Remember

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You and never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!!

Time to Listen to God and Fight

This is my first post in several months. It has taken all this time to get back and going, because I was ready to quit. I was feeling down. I was having a pity party. 

That is behind me now. I feel God pushing me back into writing. He has told me to stop drowning in the muck and mire, and start helping people.

Each day I will be sending out daily signs of hope. It may be something personal that I went through, or it may be sharing stories of others who have suffered. 

 The bottom line is if you are suffering from anxiety, fear, depression, failure, low self-esteem, loneliness, and the many other usual suspects, this will be your home for peace and comfort.

Well now…happy to see you here again. It has been forever since I last talked to you. I hope everything is going well for you.

Since August a year ago, this site has been down. During that August I was charging along at a fast pace. I had 108,000 followers who were getting my posts every day in the mailbox. I was sending out hope, and comfort.

Then a horrible thing happened. My site crashed. It had been hacked. I called my provider. They checked it out, and said there was nothing I could do. It has been completely wiped out. I lost my 108,000 followers.

I went into depression. I withdrew from my family. I felt so lost. I was having a serious pity party that no one wanted to come to.

This went on for a year and a few months, until this morning!

That is when God woke me up and told me to quit my pity party. He told me to stop drowning in the muck and mire, and to start helping people again. It was very clear. I didn’t imagine Him speaking to me. He clearly wanted me to get at it.

Have you ever felt so down that you didn’t even want to get up in the mornings? Have you shut your heart to everyone? Did you hide your head in the sand to getaway from the world?

Well, you can see that I was there with you. Now it is time for you to listen to God like I did. He has plans for you. He wants to see you to help others. He knows your talents and wants you to use them.

Time to fight back!

Here is how you can fight back against the hackers. I have a very secure site now. I have only one  follower right now, and that is my tech guy (Jim Smith) who was with me yesterday to make sure everything was ready to go.

We need to let the hackers know that they cannot win!!

All you have to do is subscribe to this site by clicking on the icon after the title and then use Feedblitz. It is the best one right now. Tell you friends about this site. This site will have daily signs of hope for everyone.

I had many comments from my previous followers on how this site had helped them each day. Some even said it stopped them from suicide.

I want the hackers to see the tremendous response to show them they have lost. I know we will get back many of the 108,000 as soon as the word gets out that we are back.

Remember

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
