DAY 20 {GIVEN HOPE}

Some seasons are harder than others to make it through as unscathed as possible, aren’t they, friend? And some times, it can be moments or days that can take their toll.

Especially when you are waiting for what He has been promised to come to pass.

25 years ago, I was given a verse during one of my quiet times, right before giving birth to my daughter, my eldest child. The beginning of a Psalm. I always wanted several children, but it became apparent after my son, my youngest was born that two was going to be it for us. And I was pretty upset about it.

The week before I had my son, I was given a few cds by a friend. One of the songs literally was all I could play and sing as I waited to be ‘delivered.’ It wasn’t until a few months later that I looked up the lyrics which had spoken so much to me at that time, and realized that verse was at the end of the same Psalm I had been given for my daughter. Not only that, but my eldest had been born in the evening, and my youngest born at the exact reverse numbers in the morning.

With those realizations, I felt at peace within. That God had answered my prayers for children, but in the way He best had parenthood designed for my husband and I.

He kept His promise to gave me both the desires of my heart, and surround me with songs of deliverance. And by doing so, He renewed and restored my Hope.

Friend, press in to the Promise Keeper, Miracle Worker, Way Maker and Light in the Darkness. For He is a Living Hope, and will not only show you the way, but light the path with every step you take together!

“Remember Your Word to Your servant, for You have given me HOPE.”

(Psalm 119: 49)
