Hopeless to Hope

The scene is set. The curtain up.

Your happy eyes now looking up.

You have no cares, your life is pat

There is no problem. You hang your hat.

The curtain down, the play is done.

And now the crying has begun.

No one understands, you think

And into darkness now you sink.

But, dearest heart, before you die

Open your heart for one last try

And cry out for the God loving you

The One who made you before the blue.

Pray, dear heart, you’ve naught to lose.

In doing so, you just may lose

The hopelessness and darkness too

For light is what He is for you.

There is another better way

And you will make it through this day.

And then the next and light invades

And soon your heart restored will praise!❤

Temporariness of Things

Sitting here, having prepared for and now waiting for a hurricane to come over and attack, thinking about a mad dictator hell bent on destroying us, contemplating the fires and earthquakes around us, wondering at the very few news stations actually reporting all these things and even fewer the proper perspective and what they all combine to mean, and I am struck by the truth that everything is temporary. Everything. But the hope we have is that God of courae is and He made us to be eternal. “This land is not my home. I’m just passing through.” That was penned way before the birthpangs started, the final countdown of this world and the glorious (or horrifying, depending on the decisions we’ve made) rebuilding of a new heaven and earth. Sin will soon have won it’s last battle for God has won the war and will soon destroy it’s presence forever. We will be with Him. I am not sure all the details but that is His department and as long as I am close to Him all the time, I am loved and eternally safe and warm and cozy. It is so important to choose God and cozy up to Him. He made everything wise and knows it is temporary. He has bigger plans for us and way better, in an evil – less eternity. That is certainly big enough to hang our hopes on. ❤❤❤

I’m Sorry, is my Hope Showing?

Many friends and blogs have issued statements of some degree of hopelessness, often to the point of depression or energy drained or just lethargic. My hope is still showing. Here is why. My hope has nothing to do with me or anyone around me. My hope is built and based solely on Jesus Christ, my Savior. My guidance is the Bible. My hope is God. There is no other hope. Those who hoped in their dreams or other people or some ideal or perfection or government or circumstance or jobs or promotions or spouses have all had their hopes shattered in this end times selfishness and evil pervading our world. Jesus will come soon and He who does not change and is full of love and grace for us will return. That is truth and is my hope. You may share it with me and I hope you do. It is very very good and peaceful here. ❤

God Is In Control

We can rest assure that God is in control of the universe and it’s going ons. Nothing is out of the scope of His attention and nothing can escape His notice. That is terrifying to those against Him, but so reassuring to those of us who love Him and are under His protection. His truth and His Word prevails every battle, every war and noone is capable of winning against Him. He is large and in charge. And He is my Heavenly Father by adoption and design because I chose to be saved and humble myself under His leadership. And anyone can. And everyone should. He wants everyone saved. He made each and every person on purpose and with special gifts and in love. And no matter what you have said or done, He still wants you and me and forgives so generously with grace and even helps you stop doing bad things. It is the most beautiful story of redemption and power and love I know of. ❤❤❤

Set for Life… and Eternity

“Set for life” is such an interesting phrase, full of hope and assumptions and faith and constancy of a number of factors. But I can boast of this not because I am someone handed everything in life but because my God/Heavenly Father made everything and as such is the richest Being ever heard of. So of course He has my back. He adopted and loves me. Not only is this true now but into eternity! And His generosity and grace are a so great that this n is also true for the poorest of poor person who calls on the name of Jesus to be saved. It is incredible!!! ❤❤❤

Quilt Progress, Pine Tree and Moon

Never thought I would like such a dark block but I believe this is what hope looks like visually. Darkness may be all around, but Jesus is our bright light like the moon here that makes it all right. Happy place. ❤
