Dear Daughter of the King:
It is true that hope deferred makes the heart sick (Proverbs 13:12). When your hopes are delayed, deterred, or detoured, you are left with emptiness. Like a stomach that just heaved, you feel hollow; left with a bitter taste in your mouth.
But, when your longings are fulfilled, you are satisfied, like partaking in a delicious, savory meal with loved ones gathered ’round the table and laughter filling the air.Dreams may come and go, morph and change, but my Hope is lasting and unwavering. Click To Tweet
The outcomes of your dreams may not unfold as you picture them. Don’t be so distracted or despaired by your losses that You fail to see the greater miracle of My faithfulness.
True Hope is Me, found in Me; a Hope that does not fade, spoil or quit.
I do not change, nor leave you or forsake you. When others let you down, when you let yourself down, when your hopes sink rather than float, remember that My Hope is upon you: steady, unchanging, and anchoring you with Truth.
I know all about your dreams, I do. But I have bigger plans that you can fathom. I have greater ideas that you can ever muster up (Ephesians 3:20-21).
No word of Mine will fail (Isaiah 55:11).
What I promise will come to pass. I am for you. I am with you (Isaiah 41:10).
You can trust Me. You can hope in me.
Your longing for control can take you down as you grasp and cling to make sense of what was, what is, and what’s coming.Hoping in possessions and position is a dangerous game for your heart. Click To Tweet
Watch in hope for Me, wait for Me, for I will hear you (see Micah 7:7).
