The Call Of Hope
In the rain and the rainbow
Singing and sleeping
The dew and the grass
In the twinkling of stars
Laughter of children
The smile of age
In the leaves of the trees
The coming dawn
In the music of springtime
Aroma of sweetness
The hidden blush of the bloom
In the beat of a heart
Breath of a hero
The eyes of love
– Gina Valley
I’ve had a rough week.
I’ve been burning the candle at 5 different ends, so I’m thoroughly exhausted.
And, although I’ve had a lot of great things happen professionally lately, our family has been experiencing a season of strife, which weighs heavily on me every day.
Frankly, I’m sick of it.
It’s heavy and it’s hard. I’m tired of dealing with it, and I can’t see the end.
But, even though I can’t see it, I know the end of this mess will come.
One of my favorite phrases from the Bible is “It came to pass…” I cling to that.
It came to pass.
It did not come to stay. It came to pass.
This will pass. Things will change. They always do. Change is built into the fabric that everything is molded out of.
Knowing things will pass and change when everything is coming up roses, unicorns, and lollipops is not that exciting, but, right now that hope that this will pass, will change, helps me get through hard hours.
Hope is an amazing thing. It’s a Gift.
So thankful for hope!
Do you feel hopeful? Does the inevitability of change make you feel secure? What reminds you to have hope? Shoot me a comment. I’m looking forward to hearing all about it.
