I was listening to Papa Roach's song "Hope for the Hopeless" from their new album FEAR. The chorus really sticks out to me.
There's hope for the hopeless
Now that I know this
You give me the strength to carry on
The voice in the silence
Is crushing the violence
It's giving me a chance to right these wrongs
I will never quit, this is it
Cause there's hope for the hopeless
Hope for the hopeless

God gives us the strength to carry on.
He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.
- Isaiah 40:29
His voice is in the silence.
And after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire the sound of a low whisper.
- 1 Kings 19:12
He crushes the oppressors.
May he vindicate the afflicted of the people, Save the children of the needy And crush the oppressor.
- Psalm 72:4
Jesus righted our wrongs on the cross.
God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant.
So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
- Romans 5:20-21
So let's not quit no matter how hard it gets! Let's support each other in encouragement and prayer as the body of Christ! We can do this!
