Hope in Tough Times

Some of you may feel like you're being crushed under the weight of a tough time.  Some of you are in a pinch because of something you've done.  Some of you are in trouble for no wrong doing of your own. Regardless of your situation the Bible offers a lot of hope for you.

Here is one passage of hope I found today.

"Yet this I call to mind
and therefore I have hope:

Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed,
for His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning:
great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, 'The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for Him.'

The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him,
to the one who seeks Him;
it is good to wait quietly
for the salvation of the Lord."
Jeremiah 3:21-26

Right now you might not be able to see it, but God is good.  As the old call and response goes, "God is good... all the time.  All the time... God is good."  His compassions never fail.  It is good to hope in God.

As the song says, "Your love never fails, it never gives up, never runs out on me."

I know this is easier said than done, but wait on the Lord.  Trust in Him today.
