Hopelessness Can Smother
KATHY— Days of Elijah were war torn times with fresh battles continually breaking out. Several days into the battle against lack and starvation, another battle broke out in the widow’s life. Her son got sick and kept getting worse until finally he died. The woman shouted at Elijah, “What have I done to you? I thought you were God’s prophet. Did you come here to cause the death of my son as a reminder that I’ve sinned against God?” War has a way of bringing the struggles of a warrior’s heart to the surface. Not only was she battling for survival and the life of her son, an old enemy showed up too. Condemnation reared its ugly head and pushed the war torn woman to the edge of hopelessness, anguish and anger that had her shouting at the prophet. Hopelessness can smother the fight in us and usually leads to a pit of self-examination and despair. The widow went there and decided that losing her son was due to her past sins. That thinking would have had her throwing up her hands and quitting . . . BUT GOD.
