How do you keep praying when you dont hear an answer? How do you cope when your problems wont go away? Helen Lescheid agonized over these questions when facing her husbands clinical depression. The answers she found will give you hope.
When Helen Lescheids husband signed himself into the psychiatric hospital, she was devastated. The initial results of treatment left her wrung out with discouragement. Despite all the treatments, medication, and hundreds of prayers, her husband didnt improve.
Thankfully, Helen eventually encountered some sunshine of hope. As she repeatedly went to the Lord in Scripture and prayer, she found herself sustained by the love and faithfulness of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit seeped down into her troubled soul and assured her of His strong presence.
Romans 15:13 was pivotal in keeping her hopes alive:
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.
My prayer is that whatever trial youre facing, this same promise will help keep your hopes alive.
