“Hope is not a feeling. It is a commitment to hold to what Scripture reminds us is true about God.”
– Sally Clarkson
“Help, I’m Drowning”
What is hope to you? Hope is many things to me, but in this season of life, it means a rescue. It represents an unburdening of the despair and angst I find myself slipping into all too often. Hope rescues us from the deep pit of despair and urges us toward the Light, the Truth of Scripture.
God is our hope, our rescue from the daily sins that claw their way into the unattended recesses of our souls. Sometimes I sit and ponder how I could possibly sink into depression? My life is abundantly blessed with health, home, feasting, and family. Why are there times when I feel joyous one minute and troubled the next?
The enemy knows my weak spots. He pokes and prods at them, ever plotting his next step in an attempt for me to react in my own strength. It’s worse when I feel alone in my journey, when I don’t share the emotional toil of my days with dear friends. It’s worse when I put on the “brave face” and carry on. But I can’t carry on until I acknowledge my need for a rescue.
God is our hope. Hope is our rescue.
Rest in Him!
