Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.
A burdensome heaviness has weighed on me for months. It slowed my pace and sapped my energy all the while never getting the nerve to show up in my consciousness where I could look at it through the filter of faith. I hardly realized it was there…until it left me.
I’ve been having a few health issues and had a few tests done. All of the tests have come back with a good result. Yesterday afternoon I noticed how light I felt. How deep my breaths came. Relief sweet and joyous.
I hear the tune of hope today. But anyone with good news hears that tune.
What if my tests had come back with different results? In the midst of bad, life-changing news, would I still hear hope’s song?
I pray that I would but I tell you honestly I don’t know.
What I do know is that when the news is bad, when the test results aren’t good, when the chaos of fear drowns out hope’s-song…I need friends to stand beside me and pray.
Pray for the noise to quiet.
Pray for Hope’s song to be strong in me.
Like you, I know of so many hurting people. I have a list and intentionally ask God to meet their needs and to open their ears to hear that tune without the words in their soul.
Do you need prayer today?
Do you need hope?

It would be such an honor to pray for you my precious friends…
