“God doesn’t promise to save us from adversity, burdens, and crises in this life, but he does make us resilient people. He gives us his own qualities of unsinkability. We can bounce back. Even when we are floundering in the depths of difficulty, even when we think we’re going under for the third time, there is prayer. There is forgiveness. There is waiting. There is hope.” Robert J. Morgan
There is no feeling quite like hopelessness. It’s the end. There is nothing left.
That is unless your hope is in God. You see, hope is only as good as what or who you place your hope in.
David knew this and often “told” himself who to hope in.
“Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.” – Psalm 31:24 KJV
“Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and [why] art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him [for] the help of his countenance.” – Psalm 42:5 KJV
“Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work; you don’t give up.” Anne Lamott
Don’t give up – Hope in God!
