Father, hold my hand
stroke my head
kiss my cheek
I have been deprived peace, I have forgotten what prosperity is. So I say “my splendor is gone and all that I had hoped from the Lord.” Yet I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning, great is your faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, therefore I will wait for Him. The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, to the one who seek Him, it is good to wait quietly.
Let Him sit alone in silence for the Lord has laid it on him. Let him bury his face in the dust, there may yet be hope. For men are not cast off by the Lord forever. Thought he brings grief, He will show compassion, so great is His unfailing love. For He does not willingly bring affliction or grief to the children on men. It is not from the mouth of the Most High that both calamities and good things come?
~ Lamentations 3 ~
Hope is a golden cord connecting you to heaven. This cord helps you hold your head up high, even when multiple trials are buffeting you. I never leave your side, and I never let go of your hand. But without the cord of hope, your head may slump and your feet may shuffle as you journey uphill with Me. Hope lifts your perspective from your weary feet to the glorious view you can see from the high road. You are reminded that the road we’re traveling together is ultimately a highway to heaven. When you consider this radiant destination, the roughness or smoothness of the road ahead becomes much less significant. I am training you to hold in your heart a dual focus: My continual Presence and the hope of heaven.
