hope often shows up best against a dark backdrop

The hope that dispels shadows and lights a heart’s dark corners can light your own. You, too, can confidently say, “I can’t unravel. I’m hemmed in hope.”

My prayer is that you will turn the last page of my books with a satisfied sigh. It will bless me if you say, “What a great story!” It will bless me more to hear, “What a great God!”

“Be to me a rock of refuge in which to dwell, and a sheltering stronghold to which I may continually resort…for You are my HOPE; O Lord God, You are my trust…and the source of my confidence.” Psalm 71:3, 5 Amplified Bible
