“One generation commends your
works to another; they tell of your mighty acts.” – Psalm 145:4, NIV
When David was young, his
mother committed suicide. She’d had untreated anxiety and post-traumatic stress
disorder following her time as a soldier overseas. Unable to get the help she
needed, she ended her life.
In the years that followed,
David struggled with depression. He often felt worthless and wondered if the
world would be better without him. He was terrified of these thoughts and
afraid he’d make the same decision as his mother. So, David reached out to an
older professor when he was in college.
The sixty-year-old woman
became like a mother to him. She explained that legacies can be filled with
pain, like David’s. “But with God’s help, you can change the legacy, creating a
new one filled with hope.”
Maybe you’re like David.
Perhaps your family members have struggled with darkness. It could be the pain
of teenage pregnancies, depression, pornography, Bipolar disorder, poverty or
Whatever your family’s struggle,
God can redeem you and your loved ones. He can bring freedom and healing, no
matter how dark your situation might seem.
God, please be the author of my family’s comeback story.
Set us free from sins that have plagued us for generations. Heal us from this
pain. Send sweet mentors to walk beside us as we heal. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Your generosity is making a difference in our community and around the world!
