March 25th - Hope

Hope is patience with the lamp litHope has been on my radar today. We will need a lot of patience in the weeks and months to come but rather than just grind through each new day hope tells us that there are lessons to learn as we go because we will be different people when we arrive at the other end. This is the Christian message of Hope - it is patience or endurance with God's Light drawing us forward and leading us on. I remember a very dark time in my life when I heard the little voice of God reassuring and had a sense that God was holding my hand.

God of hope help us to learn lessons from this dark time that may help us live better when we have weathered the storm!
