the wellspring of the heart
grounded in Who God is,
established in His Word,
the glimmer of light in darkness.

a promise, a forward look,
a bridge over the bog of trial,
which carries the footsteps of our faith
and turns our eyes to God.

Hope –
the word is honey on the lips,
water to the parched soul,
nourishment to the emaciated heart,
the manna from God for the hungry soul.


Psalm 42:11 Why are you cast down, O my soul? and why are you disquieted within me? hope thou in God; for I shall yet praise Him, Who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
