Hope Which Was Lost…

“Yet this 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.” Lamentations 3:22-23

When is enough enough? That has been a question that I have been asking myself all year long… and have yet to find an answer for. Since the beginning of the year, I have been lamenting for myself and for others around me that have become victims of our humanity: dealing with sickness, grief, pain, etc. It has been really easy to lose hope, to get stuck in a place of mourning. To see everything going wrong and to believe that nothing will ever go right again.

“Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope…”

In the midst of everything that has gone wrong this year, God has not forsaken me. Therefore I have hope.

In the areas of my finances, God has been my Provider. Therefore I have hope.

At the moments where I have felt the most broken, God has been my Comforter. Therefore I have hope.

In the moments of my deepest grief, God has been my Peace. Therefore I have hope.

In the moments when my faith has been all but gone, God has proved himself time and time again as my Savior, my Healer, my Friend. Therefore I have hope.

“The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.” – Lamentations 3:24-25

Hope which was lost, now stands renewed.
