Have you ever felt the pang of despair? There was a time when I was enveloped by the darkness of despair. Although I claimed to know God, I was pushing him away because of bitterness. Although I was married, I felt utterly alone. I was losing all hope as depression dragged me further away from God and away from my husband. I may have felt trapped beneath the weight of defeat, but God was not willing to lose me. He pursued me relentlessly, even though I was pushing Him away… His love pursued me. It took time for me to recognize His faithfulness when I was unfaithful, but when I did, my heart changed. God’s great love transformed me and filled my heart with hope.
