As a teenager, I felt hopeless. I felt imprisoned by darkness! I was suicidal and felt that death was the only way out. In an act of desperation, and as my last resort, I cried out to Jesus. From that point on, hope slowly started creeping into my life. This hope has taken me on an incredible journey. I am discovering more and more about God’s love and compassion for the people the world and it’s leaders oppress, enslave and stomp on. Through his death and resurrection, Jesus flipped the world upside down. He elevated the poor, prisoners, and the weak, by saying, “you are blessed and the kingdom of heaven is yours.” As I look at all the inequality and injustice that surrounds me, knowing that Jesus makes everything right fills me with a mysterious hope that’s hard to describe.
