Hope Help

Jesus said, “…My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.” Matthew 26:38 NKJV

Did you know that hopelessness is one of the symptoms of depression and suicide? If you or someone you know is feeling hopeless below are some helpful resources to begin the healing and recovering process back to hope. Please know that you are not alone! There is hope. Even Jesus was “exceedingly sorrowful…even to death.” Sometimes we just need someone to “stay here” with us and listen.
