Ramblings from my journal…
“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when desire comes, it is the tree of life.” Part of my wrestling is that I am hesitant to hope, having seen many hopes dashed time and time again. But I think the heart was fashioned to always hope – it has to always hope in something. And it has an amazing amnesia of what happened to hope the time before.
Yes, scary though it is, I will trust to hope.
“Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh will also rest in hope.” – Psalm 16:9
