If believers decay in their first love, or in some other grace, yet another grace may grow and increase, such as humility, their brokenheartedness; they sometimes seem not to grow in the branches when they may grow at the root; upon a check grace breaks out more; as we say, after a hard winter there usually follows a glorious spring.
– Richard Sibbes
God is the God of restoration. If he raised Jesus from the dead he can surely raise hope from the dead.
It’s never too late.
