Clinging to hope

Day 8 of 31 Days of October – Roses Among The Thorns

I look through my papers, searching for the one with the Scripture promises I believe the Lord has given me over the years.  I need them this morning.  A disturbing message from afar has driven me to them.

I begin to read in Isaiah and I find assurance over and over that Yahweh is God and there is no other.  That He is faithful to His word.  That He will do what He says He will do.  And that He will fulfill His purpose.

I cling to the hope that lies beyond the inner veil where my High Priest intercedes for me.  God is trustworthy and I know that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him.  That commitment goes back a long way.  He will not fail.

So I walk and pray and trust the Truth and the God who spoke it.

These are my roses for today.


Will you join me on my October journey as I challenge myself to write for 31 days?  I’d love to have you come along.

For a list of the days of October, go here please.

  1. One of my favorite scriptures during times of stress when the battle rages is:

    So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
    I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
    “All who rage against you
    will surely be ashamed and disgraced;
    those who oppose you
    will be as nothing and perish.
    Though you search for your enemies,
    you will not find them. Isaiah 41:10-12

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Let's talk.
