Are there some days when hope seems so very far away?
We only have to watch the news to see that our world, our nation and often our communities are in trouble. It can be so very discouraging. Where can we turn to find hope to make it through the day?
The past week I have been reading from the Psalms*. In them we read of David’s struggles and yet of his hope in God. I encourage you to take some time to prayerfully read the Psalms and consider David’s response when life seems overwhelming.
When life is discouraging, can you say—
“Your face, O Lord, I shall seek.” Psalm 27:8
For I hope in You, O Lord; You will answer, O Lord my God. Psalm 38:15
