Hope: By Faith: Prayers and Poetry



Hope


A dream is just a

fleeting glimpse, ideas

of delight or challenge

awakening senses to

possibilities.


Becomes hope when

acted on; building

invisible steps towards

visible reality beyond

present.


An anchor in

cold waters, chain

links rise ever

sun-ward keeping the

promise.

Hebrews 12:5, “And you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons, ‘My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, Nor faint when you are reproved by Him;’”

Promise: By Faith: Prayers and Poetry


Hebrews 11:39, “Yet, all these, though they were commended for their faith, did not receive what was promised,”

Promise

The promise they followed was beyond their realization or participation. Yet they grasped the value and clung to its beyond fulfillment for themselves and their descendants. They lived into the future while in the present. Now.

How often do we become dismayed if we cannot receive immediate answers or tangible rewards? We are a society of immediate gratification. Even when we acknowledge it, there is often still a part of us that craves some applause.

Yet beauty evolves. Fruit bearing trees often take several seasons to flourish. We study and admire the cycles nature takes. We respect the wondrous perfection of a firefly’s brief lifespan as well as the longevity of a giant tortoise. Each of their days lived in the fullness of what they are.

Hope lives into God’s promises regardless of circumstances. Easier to desire than to do. Unless we live each day trusting and resting in the facts that we too can abide in His presence every moment.  And we too can grasp that gift now.

Lord, help us to walk and work in faith regardless of outward approval or censure. May it be Your Spirit’s word speaking in and through us to share Your hope.

Your thoughts,
