Hope…

Here’s a quote from one of my favorite writers for our hearts and minds to munch on:

“Our hope is not based on something that will happen after our sufferings are over, but on the real presence of God’s healing Spirit in the midst of these sufferings.” Henri Nouwen, Making All Things New

Whatever we may have suffered through in the past, or will encounter in the future, or what we may be facing right now — when we turn to God in our sufferings, we find God is already there in the deepest places with fountains of everlasting love ready to touch our hearts with healing balm that calms our fears.

We don’t need to be afraid because we can hope in God, now.

Hope is an invitation…

Because hope, like faith, is a choice.

Hope is an invitation…

p.s. Today’s Scripture readings included the account of Mary, the sister of Lazarus, anointing the feet of Jesus with costly perfume. Thought to write something, but found it said already in a previous post.  You can read it by clicking here: Mary and Martha
