While destruction is wasting at noonday and all around is bleak, there is a glimmer of hope within all the heaviness: the hope there is in the Lord.

26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.

“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all the darkness.” Desmund Tutu

“Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul-and sings the tune without the words-and never stops at all.” Emily Dickinson

“Hope is patience with the lamp lit.” Tertullian

There MUST be hope to continue and in that hope, while we wait, it is good; like the “good” He proclaimed at creation. In the darkness, we are waiting still for Him to pronounce LIGHT!
