Hope that makes no sense.
Hope when circumstances of life make no sense.
Hope when in the natural all is dark, gray, devoid of life or hope.
Hope that springs up like a bulb from deep within the soil.
Hope that simply “is “because you “know”.
HOPE in the person of GOD, Himself.
Elohim…Gen. 1:1 “in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
Elohim who is all we need. Elohim who has always been. God. God, who made all things, including you and me. Gen 1:26 “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.'”
He is El Shaddai, the all sufficient one. He is all we need. All we ever needed and all we ever will need.
He is Sar Shalom, our Prince of Peace. Isa 9:6
When the tide of hopelessness threatens to wash over us, all we need to do is stop, pause and remember Who He Is.
What name, attribute of GOD do you need this very day? What name of God would awaken hope to arise in your heart?
I am near to the brokenhearted.
I hear the silent cries.
I see the unshed tears.
Be comforted in/by My love.
Remember this Precious Child,
No sorrow is wasted.
I am He Who Redeems,
Who causes the sorrow to joy exchange.
I am He Who Sees,
Who Cares and
Who Walks Beside.
Come to Me.
All the time.
From within any time.
You will find rest for your heart.

If you look at the photo, you see rocks. There are sea creatures who dwell in the rocks. They NEED the ocean to come and cover them or they would die. For a time, during low tide they are ok, but if the ocean ceased to exist it’s ebb and flow they also would cease to exist.
There is a yearning
That only LOVE can satisfy
There is a place
A deep deep place
Deeper than the deepest reservoir
A heart place created to be filled
Only by Jesus
His invitation stands open
He beckons us to come
To come closer
And deeper than ever before
His love is everlasting
Rich and fulfilling
His love satisfies our heart
And fills that deep place
But His love NEVER quenches
And the drawing
We were created to LONG for intimacy
The world can’t fill us
People can’t fix us
We truly NEED intimacy
Daily and moment by moment
Awareness of our connection
To and with Yeshua.
Everything else is parody,
Of the “real thing”
When it says…”But His love NEVER quenches” that simply means that we NEED daily and moment by moment to be in connection and awareness of Him. It is not a one time filling of the reservoir but an ongoing thing.
I think in part that is because as His sons and daughter, we are to be giving forth of that which he has given us. We were created for relationship and one meeting is not relationship.
