Time to tune in to 5 Minute Friday, with The Gypsy Mama. Every Friday readers write for 5 minutes about a chosen topic, but they are not allowed to edit their work, back track or over think it. Today’s topic is Expectation, so here are my 5 unedited minutes:
There is always hope.
Even when it seems like all your strength is gone and that your cries go unnoticed. Even when your heart feels heavy with sadness as you walk through a valley full of shadows. It is easy to lose perspective and think that God shuts out your prayer.
But…there is always hope.
Like Jeremiah wrote in Lamentations – one thing he recalls gives him hope and expectation: God’s loving-kindness and mercy does. not. fail. His compassions are new each morning, and His stability and faithfulness is abundant. (Lamentations 3)
Live with this knowledge today, expecting to see His faithfulness and mercy.
