Quiet, Silence, Hope

I wasn't necessarily going to post today.

Today is a big prayer day for me. I know of a few situations that are big things. Somehow, they all seem to be happening... today. My heart is heavy and burdened as I stand in the shadows petitioning on others behalf.

I wasn't necessarily going to post today.

And then I came across this and how could I not?
"I remember it all—oh, how well I remember— the feeling of hitting the bottom. But there's one other thing I remember, and remembering, I keep a grip on hope:

God's loyal love couldn't have run out, his merciful love couldn't have dried up. They're created new every morning. How great your faithfulness! I'm sticking with God (I say it over and over). He's all I've got left.

God proves to be good to the man who passionately waits, to the woman who diligently seeks. It's a good thing to quietly hope, quietly hope for help from God. It's a good thing when you're young to stick it out through the hard times.

When life is heavy and hard to take, go off by yourself. Enter the silence. Bow in prayer. Don't ask questions: Wait for hope to appear. Don't run from trouble. Take it full-face. The "worst" is never the worst.

Why? Because the Master won't ever walk out and fail to return."

Lamentations 3: 20-31 (Message)


  1. I am sticking with God too Donetta, amen.

  2. I agree, face trouble full face and the worst is never the worst. And God is always faithful.


Thank you for taking a moment to stop and chat. I enjoy the presence of you!
