Hope

“Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him”. (Psalms 62:5 NLT)

Let all that I am…

Daughter, wife, mother, friend, dreamer, detailer, realist, writer, speaker, cook, cleaner, charmer, inspirer, discipliner, frail, my own worst critic, speaker of careless words, depressed, worrier, stubborn, strong, passionate, fearful, faithful, wonderful, beautiful, worry-full, redeemed, restored.

Wait quietly…

Stop and don’t take another step forward. Hush anxious thoughts. Put down the to-do list. Quiet fearful eyes. Close the door. Rest with abandon. Embrace moments of peace. Breathe silence. Cease to think, worry, wonder or wonder and simply be.

Before God…

Not before your bills. Not before your responsibilities. Not before your failures and faults nor your achievements and success. Wait quietly before God. The Creator, Provider, Peace maker, Redeemer, Savior, Lord. He is sovereign and merciful, strong and gentle. Powerful and purposeful.

For my hope…

The tender expectations of possibility. Easily bruised. Unrealistic. Fantastic. Wonderful. Amazing. Hope is the vehicle of momentum filled with a gas tank of faith and moves you forward. Without hope, the tank is empty, you feel as if you are going nowhere with no indication of possible change. With hope nothing is impossible because with God all things are possible.

Is in him…

My hope is wrapped up in the arms of grace surrounding my soul. My hope is held securely in nail scarred hands. My hope is in him, precious him. Faithful him. Powerful him. Loving him.

Who are you (all of you)?

What are you waiting before?

Where is your hope?

What are you hoping for?
