Strength for today, and bright hope for tomorrow

Sometimes, you forget how to speak, even to God.  Little things creep up on you until suddenly they turn into big things, and it's all you can do not to falter under their weight.

In those moments, it's hard even to pray.  Things will take over until you have no breath in your lungs and no words on your lips.  That's when Scripture comes along and gives you the wisdom and the strength to hold on for a while longer.

When I'm left wordless, there is always the Word.

I need this hope daily.  Maybe you do, too.

[14] Know that wisdom is such to your soul;
if you find it, there will be a future,
and your hope will not be cut off.
(Proverbs 24:14 ESV)

[16] So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. [17] For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, [18] as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
(2 Corinthians 4:16-18 ESV)

[19] God is not man, that he should lie,
or a son of man, that he should change his mind.
Has he said, and will he not do it?
Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?
(Numbers 23:19 ESV)



  1. I needed to hear this today. :) Thank you, sweet Caro!!

  2. Love the Numbers verse- one of my favorites I turn to when I am in doubt... and then He comes back, and reminds me of that time when such-and-such happened, and He gave me a certain verse in different ways, day after day. His sovereignty is limitless, and all is grace with Him <3 Thanks, my friend!
