May I sit beside you for a moment and whisper a bit of hope into your ear? Would that be okay?
When taken at face value, it may seem as if all hope is lost. When you stand at the kitchen sink and listen to the news reports or to the voice coming through the speaker on your phone, or when you read the latest updates on social media and take them just as they are, it may seem as if the best escape is for God to open up a window above us in the sky and snatch us away to a better place beyond the clouds.
Life sometimes (as my mother-in-law used to say) is a tough row to hoe. I have more to say about this. Join me at incourage?
