I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
I admit, I didn't get up at sunrise, but I did awake. While my spirit rejoiced, my flesh was a slug, probably from the allergy meds last night.
But I did get up and the sun did too.
There are days when our hope is sluggish too. The troubles and pains of this world can appear to blot out the hope we have in Christ. That's when we need to go to the Word, the truth, and encourage ourselves in the Lord. His Word is true. He does love us, and He promised to never leave us.
Put your trust in the Lord and the Hope that He has given us. He is coming again, There is eternal life for whosever believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
Let your hope rise in your heart, shining His light on whatever troubles surround you. Jesus promised to never leave or forsake us. You can count on that!
Banks may fail, doctors give bad reports, governments change and businesses fall, but our God is an ever present help.
Awake, My Soul, to Joyful Lays
5. When trouble, like a gloomy cloud,
has gathered thick and thundered loud
He near my soul has always stood
His loving-kindness, oh, how good!
Go rejoicing into the day, confident that He is with you and will never leave you.
