62 – Despair

The year is 2042. The world is a very different place than it was just a few decades ago. Climate change has ravaged the planet, and many cities have been abandoned due to rising sea levels. The global economy has collapsed, and there is widespread poverty and hunger.

In this time of chaos and despair, a young woman named Jessica is trying to find her way in the world. She is a talented artist, but she has no way to make a living from her art. She is struggling to survive, and she is starting to lose hope.

One day, Jessica is walking through the ruins of a city when she sees a group of people gathered around a man. The man is speaking about hope, and he is telling the people that they are not alone. Jessica is drawn to the man’s words, and she listens intently.

The man’s name is Matt, and he is a preacher. He tells the people that God loves them, and that He has a plan for their lives. He tells them that they can overcome any obstacle if they have faith in God.

Jessica is inspired by Matt’s words, and she decides to join his congregation. She starts to attend his church services, and she begins to learn more about God. As she learns more about God, she starts to feel a sense of hope and peace that she has never felt before.

Jessica continues to attend Matt’s church services, and she starts to volunteer her time to help others. She helps to feed the hungry, and she helps to clothe the poor. She also starts to share her art with the people in her community.

Jessica’s art is a source of hope and inspiration for the people in her community. Her paintings and sculptures remind them that there is beauty in the world, even in the midst of chaos and despair. Jessica’s art also reminds them that God loves them, and that He is always with them.

Jessica is grateful for the opportunity to share her art with others. She knows that her art can make a difference in the world, and she is determined to use her art to spread hope and inspiration. She is reminded of the verse from Malachi 3:6, which says, “I am the Lord your God and I never change.” God is a God of love and mercy, and He will never change. He is always there for us, no matter what we are going through.

Jessica’s story is a reminder that even in the darkest of times, there is always hope. God is always with us, and He will never abandon us. Even when the world changes, He doesn’t. We can overcome any obstacle if we have faith in God.

“I the LORD do not change.”

Malachi 3:6
