Doug Bolton, the founder of Signs of Hope, is writing a new book, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.” It reaches out the military and veterans who may be battling anxiety, fear, depression, addictions, rejections, PTSD, and many other usual suspects. There are 22 military connected suicides every day. That is almost one every hour. We need to help stop those statistics. Be looking for more updates about the new book.
+ Update! The book has been sent to my editor recently. Now I wait and see how many red marks she will have in it. 🙂
There will be some incredible interviews with veterans in this book. Up to twenty different veterans agreed to let me ask them some very personal questions. Some answers will have you in tears.
Life is hectic! Life is too fast! Life seems to be leaving me in the dust!
Do any of those statements fit you? I know your pain. The earth seems to be spinning way too fast. There have been times when I felt I want to let loose and allow the world to throw me off of this planet.
Before I actually check out of this hotel called earth, let me share some things with you:
- I have said this meaning times, but all storms stop and then there is the Son!
- Everytime I face adversity I seem to grow. Though it is very hard, I am stronger.
- When I see someone else who is hurting and I reach out to help them, its seems to help me as well. If I bring a smile to their face, I have one on my face too.
- If I fall into the muck and mire of life, God is always there to pull me out.
We need to know who saved us, and how He defines we are. Do you know who you are under God’s love?
Let me put it this way. God created everyone of us in His own image. He doesn’t make mistakes. He created you for a reason.
You are very special. He didn’t create you like any other creature. We weren’t created to look like the animals of the forest. We weren’t even created to look like angels. We are totally created in God’s image.
We are more like God than any living thing.
Cling to this. Never feel you are inferior to anyone. God created man and woman and said there were create equal.
When you look in the mirror realizes that you are looking at God’s image. Be thankful he went as far as to create you in this way.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never,ever, give up.
