The message of this Christmas Season is one of hope.
James Cameron was the only survivor of a 1930 lynch mob, and he would go on to found America’s Black Holocaust Museum. How did he survive the mob – physically and emotionally? In his autobiography, A Time of Terror, he wrote, “With faith and prayer over my lips forever, I was determined to keep my hands on the throttle and my eyes upon the rails.”
In other words, Cameron exercised hope.
There are several reasons you may feel hopeless today:
- Chronic relapses
- Married to a sex addict
- Loss of job or friends
Still, the Bible offers hope.
“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people” (Ephesians 1:18).
Recovery Step: Never give up on hope. If hope is all you have, you’re still in the game.
