Do not despair of the mercy of God

If God could split the sea for Moses, if He could rescue Jonah from the belly of a dark whale, in the depths of the dark sea, if He could provide for Mary as she gave birth to Jesus all alone, if He could reunite Joseph as a ruler of Egypt with the brothers who threw him in the well, He can easily surround you with the love and support you need to get through the difficulties you’re facing.

When me and you cry out, from the depths of our souls, in pain, feeling all alone, He has already responded: “When My servant asks you concerning Me, I am near! I respond to the supplication of the one who asks when they ask!” (Quran 2:186)

No one was with Moses when he fled Pharoh’s city, or Jonah when he was swallowed, or Mary when she gave birth, or Joseph in that dark well. No one but the One Who saw them through it. He’s the same One Who will see me and you through our pain. Even when we forget about Him, when we try to push Him away, no matter how long it has been or how much we’ve done, He’s still calling out:

“O My servants who have transgressed against themselves, do not despair of the mercy of God. Indeed, God forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.” (Quran 39: 53)

Go back to Him. He is always ready for you.
