There have been times in my life where I have felt lost. As if I was a shadow passing through an insignificant existence. I felt alone. My heart sagged into a numbing hopelessness. As I crumbled to my knees with internal torment I cried out to my maker. In tears I prayed to God in the name of His son, Jesus Christ, that I could know if He even cared about me. I desperately needed to know there was someone out there that understood. I needed to feel loved. After a few moments, I felt the warmth and peace of my Savior’s love envelop me. I know God loves me and is aware of me personally! I felt that love illuminate my wearied soul. His light revealed from the shadow a daughter that He knows and cares about me. I poured all the desires and feelings of the corners of my heart into His fountain of forgiveness. I felt His hope!
“Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world!” (Ether 12:4, Book of Mormon)
We all can have His hope!
