Hope in Christ

From Isaiah 64:8:  “Yet, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand.”

Spiritual homelessness

Forcing hope’s darkest setbacks

With every passing day

Time stops, frozen in its tracks

 

How long will God stand silent?

Fading lives, like autumn’s leaf

Among earth’s darkest shadows

Hope’s flames, drowned by a sly thief

 

Expectations growing dim

Praying, Savior’s light to come

God’s love, molds life’s foundations

Our hope, plays its steady drum

 

Coming Spiritual light

Transforming power from God

Iniquities to be paid

Shepherd’s hope, His staff and rod

 

Hopeful world watches and waits

Appealing to God, save us

Hungry flock’s burdens cry out

God remains faithful, hear us

From Psalm 80:1-3:  “Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock!  You who are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh.  Stir up your might, and come to save us!  Restore us, O God; let your face shine, that we may be saved.”

The Christian season of Advent begins with this final Sunday of November.  For myself, this will bring a time of meditation and prayer . . . filled with the hope, peace, joy, and love of Christ, the Messiah.
