One of my favorite Bible verses is Judges 16:22.
“But before long, Samson’s hair began to grow back”
This might not seem like much to you, but remember that Samson had hit rock bottom. His strength was gone. His head was shaved. His eyes were poked out. He was in chains, mocked. The enemy took his strength and his eyes and all Samson got for it was a few nights with Delilah.
This is all very sad but there is redemption in it. In those dark days, he came to his senses, and his heart turned to God in prayer. As he did a little stubble appeared on his scalp. Little by little it grew, and as it did, so did he.
Maybe you, like Samson, feel hopeless. Maybe you, due to mistakes made, lost everything. Listen to me: it’s not too late. Your hair can grow again. As long as your heart is beating in your chest, there remains hope of a better tomorrow. It matters not how deep of a pit you have fallen into or how long you have been there—only whether you are willing to be made well. You can get back up.
