How often do we find ourselves calling upon the Lord but forgetting to listen for His response? How often do we forget to “do” what the Lord tells us to do? Well the psalmist did not forget; as our verses today remind us. When the Lord said: “Seek my face”; David said in his heart; “Yes, Lord, thy face will I seek”. When you cry out for the Lord’s mercy do not forget to set your heart on ​listening for the Lord’s response; for He is the God of our salvation.  

God of our salvation
Our Lord is the God of our salvation; He does not hide His face from His faithful servant. Even if your mother or father forsook you the Lord will be there to take you up; so do not fear! Do not fear any of those who may rise up against you; for the same Lord that takes you up is the same Lord that will make your path straight and deliver you from your enemies.

Wait on the Lord
So wait on the Lord! You will not find one person from Adam, to you, to me, to the last person that will be born on this earth that can say that they followed our Lord’s path and it led them nowhere! You cannot find one person who can say; our Lord “was” carrying them ​then​ He dropped them! You cannot find one person who can say; they ​pled for God’s mercy and He did not care. I ​believe ​as the psalmist said: the goodness of the Lord is ​STILL ​in the land of the living!

So, faithful reader, with good courage and knowing that He will strengthen thine heart: ​wait on the Lord.

in Hope


Does hope come from circumstance or position? 

Does news media dispense it like sanitizer Frequently pumped into shaking hands? Do politicians, elected officials with platforms, Agendas slyly slipped in with massed Hysteria pummeled into frightened minds? 

Does it come from friends, real or social, Who rush to polarized defenses for disconnected Lives? If the bandwagon does, how then can we not? 

Does hope come from rage colored marches Or fisted hands, blinded eyes, or silenced Voices demanding what should already be? 

Is it found in kingly aspirations of power Controlled, of peacefully protested injustices? Or is it like Hughes’ Dreams Deferred, festering Inside or ready to explode across this land? 

Where then is your hope? 

Is hope found in salvation’s future glory, Or waiting eagerly for that professed day, A promised adoption, you a new creation? 

Is it forever linked to faith and love Perfected, completed in  His great day? Can confident hope of heaven’s wonders Rest in what you know, God’s unchanging Gospel? 

Gaze contently beyond time’s hazy face Of desperate immediacy, to unfathomable Hope in Christ’s glory finally revealed! May His overflowing confident hope fill you completely With love, joy, and peace from His Holy Spirit. For that is where my hope comes from.
