How to Find Hope When Hope Has Perished — A Small Work

The more I read and study my Bible, the more I realize the truth that all of the Bible is given to us by God for our growth in wisdom and faith. Here is a good example in this article about the Book of Lamentations. Here is my takeaway: “The author tells us, “The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him” (Lam 3:25). Among other things, this means that seeking the Lord may involve more than waiting, but it does not involve less. As much as it grates against our human impulses, we must wait on the Lord. This is a good practice for God’s people to learn even from their youth (verse 27).” From A Small Work………………

We cannot harvest hope from a hopeless situation. We need something from the outside.
