What is it that, beyond our faith, keeps us standing and does not let us lower our arms?
“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.” Jeremiah 29:11
Faith in humanity. Although it is true that we are going through a period in which everything is governed by consumption and image, there is still a large part of humanity that remains faithful to the commands of Christ, and it is precisely they who give us the strength to continue our Father's fight. It is Faith in humanity that keeps us standing.
“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.” Psalms 42:11
The future in the children. Many times we make the serious mistake of not paying attention to what children have to say. We just have to remember how God said: "Let the children come to me." This not only gives a place to the voice of the little ones but also exhorts us to listen to what they have to say, let us remember that in their hands is the future both ours and the message of Christ.
“but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31
The divine message. Because ultimately what we are looking for is that the message of eternal love that God proposes, crosses generational barriers and lasts as it has done since his birth. It is his wish that it spread to all the ends of the world and finally bring peace to men.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
The Holy Promise. Finally, but in no order of priority, let us remember the promise that God makes us and that he keeps throughout our existence: that of eternal life in paradise with Him and our loved ones, in an environment where worries vanish in the air and there is no place for negative feelings to flourish. There everything is love and also peace, harmony in its purest state.
