Lent 2017: Hope

img_0604

Your love surrounds me always;
In the darkness and uncertainty of life,
In the everyday strife,
I am held securely in the certainty of hope,
In the hopefullness of Your love,
In the loveliness of Your grace.
You hold my face in Your hands,
You look me in the eye and
Tell me I am loved, no matter what.
There are doubts and fears,
Indecision and apprehension,
Normal everyday tension,
But my prayer to You is a powerful
Release from the chains that bind me,
From the things that hold me back.
Over time, I can see You changing me,
Helping me trust You more honestly,
Thoroughly cleansing me
From all my troubles.
You, give me hope,
Help me cope
With what life throws at me.
Though I was far off, you met me
Where I was.

You give me hope,
Now and forever, Amen.
