You Are Not Alone

and hope does not put us to shame… Romans 5:5.

Your dark days will be over!

Have you ever felt like the whole world was turning against you, nothing’s working for you and life seem to have lost all meaning? Well, you’re not alone!

I’ve been battered and bruised, hopeless and shamed. As a teenager, I either begged or stole to eat. But God saw me through my dark days. I know change is possible. Your dark days will be over.

A reader’s note from Texas

In 2011, I wrote a letter to my soul while in the middle of a major family transition from the UK to Germany; it was a season of personal uncertainties and anxiety.

What I didn’t realize about that personal note was how much it would resonate with others. Yesterday (after 2 years), I received a note from a reader in Texas and here’s what she wrote:

Hello Joseph. My name is ———. I have been having so much tribulation for a long time now. Today, out of desperation I went on the web and found your page on living a purposeful life, followed links, and found Letter to my Soul. Can’t even begin to tell you the impact this had on me. Tears of relief, sadness, hope. So many things at once. Thank you.

Your story, your struggles, your pain can shape others’ story. Don’t stop living a great story. Don’t stop! – Tweet this encouragement

You are not alone

My reader’s story reminds me of why I do what I do, why God gave me this platform and how our stories are interconnected. You are not alone in your struggles.

Take a moment to reach out to someone right now; I mean RIGHT NOW. You could just be saving a dream about to die.

Has anyone recently told you how your life and words have touched their lives? Share that moment below.
