This Is Hope

I’m glad from the inside out, ecstatic; I’ve pitched my tent in the land of hope. – Acts 2:26

“So speak encouraging words to one another.  Build up hope so you’ll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind. –1 Thessalonians 5:11

And this is hope.

Do you see Her. Present yet hidden.

Bright yet shadowed.

Brilliantly encouraging, pouring her Love out  in the darkness.

She gleams and shimmers and lights the unknown.

Whispering, come, take a step.

Take another, in Faith, don’t stay back.

Her invitation, gold leafed and signed with the pen of Grace, is issued in Love, hand-delivered.

She is confident, bold.

Boldly expectant.

She looks into the future and states with Love its good, its great, its waiting for you.

Did you see her uninvite despair to her party.  No gold-leaf invitations to the Dance.

She guarantees fear will not be apart of her life celebration.

Can you hear her, see her, and smell her fragrance.  Its sweet like jasmine vine with bees all swarming, buzzing all around.

Tell me you see her.

You will encourage me if you have.  If you do.  If you’re certain of Her.  Will you tell me how you held out for Her.  How you longed for Her and she lifted you on the days when you were weak and wet with tears.

And this is Hope.

Did you hear her quiet the spirit and still the heart.

Clearing the way for Joy.  Marking the path for Mercy and Grace.

She is pointing us, leading us to the heart of God.

Did you hear her behind the dark cloud singing her Heavenly praise notes of encouragement.

If you did, testify to it.

Tell of it.

Spread her around.

Her song is tender, her words are gentle, her spirit is calm.

This is Hope. I long for her today.
