Against All Hope

I’m not sure if any of you are like me. I have seasons where I am thinking all of the deep thoughts. I’m not sure what it has been about this summer, but my thoughts have weighed heavy on me. Since the Spring, I have felt a bit tormented in my thought life. It has come in waves and at times has overtaken me.

I have never really been one to deal with a scattered and heavy thought life, but here we are. I can’t help but think that the enemy can sense that the Lord has something of significance awaiting me.

I am also not one to look at the world around me and be so discouraged and yet, here I am. It seems as though there is attack and opposition and hate and oppression at every turn. The enemy is working overtime to destroy us.

I don’t know about you, but I never want to give him the satisfaction of knowing that he beat me. As far as I know, our God calls us overcomers. He says that we are more than conquerors. He calls us to continue to fight the good fight and hold on to hope. Hope’s name is Jesus.

What does it look like to be an overcomer and to have hope when all appears hopeless?

      Thank you for sharing Virginia!

      Father, You are close to the brokenhearted. You bind up their wounds. Be Virginia’s strength and joy in this season. You are the lifter of her head and her portion forever. Provide for her family in exceedingly and over abundant ways. Deepen her trust in You. May she lean into Your rest and Your promises. You are good and faithful and loving and kind. We trust that You are at work even when we can’t see it. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
