Welcome to our “Survive & Thrive” page. Using the free tools available on this page, in particular the daily meditations of Propel to Hope: When Life Hurts Like Hell, will help you survive this painful period and then transition to a thriving, Incredible Life.
I (Larry) am sorry that for either you or someone you love, life is unbelievably tough right now. Sometimes we can’t see what purpose these periods of suffering can possibly have in our lives. It’s easy to lose hope.
Even in these darkest times, there is always hope. Hope that is based on faith because when doctors or other experts give up, we have nothing left but our faith. At the very least; we need faith that everything happens for a reason. And not just any reason, but a good reason. That does not mean that what you are suffering through is good. Disease, unemployment, divorce, the loss of a loved one: None of these are good, yet as the bible teaches in Romans 8:28 God can use terrible times to serve a good purpose:
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” NIV
As a follower of Jesus Christ I have been blessed to find that despite horrible circumstances, God has always been at work in my life or the lives of others. Painful lessons have been learned, growth has come, lives have been changed for the better, and all in times of great pain and hardship.
It is my prayer and sincere desire that Propel to Hope: When Life Hurts Like Hell will serve to inspire you to hope and a deepening faith that God is in charge, and that He has a good plan for your life:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jer. 29:11-12 NIV
