Life was tough for Robert, an older man living locally who was experiencing hardship like never before in his life. Every aspect of his life was affected and he could not see a way out. Robert has a Christian background, but had distanced himself from church over time.
“I felt trapped with no way out of my misery. I honestly could not see a way out of my problems. I was stressed and irritable.”
It is hard to comprehend what Robert was going through in this time of helplessness and despair. On top of everything, the COVID-19 pandemic was causing him further stress, and Robert was feeling that God had let him down as well.
