El’Elyon how do I give hope in a hopeless world?
I ask as I sit along the shores of my heart waiting for Him to come and close the day as the sun sets out and flys towards a new day.
It’s quiet. .. Most the world around me is asleep. The air taking it’s seemingly first full breath in hours. The big city. .. remembers peace. .. the ground alive with activity with the small things that can’t survive hurried feet during the day.
Ahhhh. ..My Beloved. .. His hand on my shoulder comes to “put to bed” the question that encompasses all the burdens of day.
“My Child, hope it’s not some thing you show. .. Be hope. Live hope.”
He sits down and takes in the view from my mind. The Word. .. patient. .. Letting me fully digest His words. .. waiting. .. Being. .. loving. Communion.
I ask without words for His exposition to go way down and make me patient for the fullness of His truth to conceive. The stars over head begin to twinkle like rousted to dance in His eyes. They become mine (His eyes) and the stars. Hope.
Learn from them. He whispers across my soul.
I begin to see. The stars just are. Exactly as He made them fully reflecting their Maker everyday. .. at all times. .. even when the Sun seems to be hiding them from view.
Live in Me. Live hope. Again His whispers are a beckoning into a deeper truth. .. Yet so simple. Ahhhh yes, I see.
We so often think of hope as something we give. Framed in words that “sound” hopeful. Collected somehow into deeds that we think is hope. But. .. to be fully alive in Him in everything we do. .. this is the true giving of hope. It gives and gives; to us as we live moment to moment and all those we cross paths with every day. Those we don’t notice and those who captivate our thoughts and prayers that are close. Live hope.
Those words echo and bring completeness to the question and the day. I am contented now. .. to just sit with Him and let the sleepiness close in and let Him lead me through my unconscious world. .. the dream filled place surrounded by His singing over me.
What glory He is. .. what Hope!
I am a star. .. twinkling His nearness. Hope.
Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah
