Why Me?

God does not care.
God does not love me.
Something is wrong with me because God allowed this to happen to me.
I’m not going to talk to God any more because it doesn’t do any good.
I deserve to be depressed.

Finding hope in Jesus can strengthen us through times of difficulty and despair even when darkness seems to surround us.
