LamentationNever read this book before, it’s a bit grim but there is hope contained within.
It so much reminds me of ISIS and Syria, does nothing change?
Lamentations 3:25, 28
God proves to be good to the man who passionately waits,to the woman who diligently seeks.
It’s a good thing to quietly hope,quietly hope for help from God.
It’s a good thing when you’re young to stick it out through the hard times.
When life is heavy and hard to take,go off by yourself. Enter the silence.
Bow in prayer.
Don’t ask questions:Wait for hope to appear.
Don’t run from trouble.
Take it full-face.
The “worst” is never the worst.
Lord, I acknowledge that I prefer to ignore and deny my pain and loss.
I struggle with seeing how resurrection life can come out of death.
Grant me the courage to pay attention to what you are doing, and to wait on you—even when everything in me wants to run away.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
