Yesterday began with sunshine and warmer temperatures than we have had over the last week! It seemed like the grass was greener, the flowers more vibrant, and the air fresher. It made me hopeful that spring might actually come and stay this week!
Sometimes in the midst of challenging times, hope seems far away and almost out of reach. Then comes to mind the scripture from Deuteronomy 31:8, “Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”
Dwelling in the Word can help bring us back to our true center and restore our hope. What helps you regain your balance and give you hope?
Most Loving Lord, give me a childlike love of Thee, which casts out all fear. Amen
Edward Bouverie Pusey (1800-1982)
