Hope Deferred… #courage

never lose hope“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life..”

Proverbs 13:12

This proverb is hard for me…

With a heart full of passions and longings, I can feel heartsick  so much of my life…

But putting my hope in who God is, letting my roots grow deep;  subsides wanting’s, and comforts my heart…

His love.

His presence; fulfills every longing and hope I can even imagine…

One day at a time, seeking His grace, keeps my heart from feeling  sick…

He covers my longings, and deeply roots my desires in who He is…

His goodness; fulfills my heart, gives me peace…

God, Himself, is my  strength, and our refuge…

He is the Tree of life…

Drawing other’s into His almighty presence, gives our lives meaning…

That is truly life giving…

Live in Love,

Lisa
