I was reading today, and found some words of the Bible that just resonated in my heart with such a fervor. How many times are we left hanging? Feeling confused. Knowing that we made our decisions based on fervent prayer and assiduous attention and that our decision was not our own, but was what God had planned for us. And then, it just doesn’t work out like we thought it would? Why? We thought we did everything we were supposed to, and then we hoped. Why didn’t things turn out as planned?
“Hope deferred makes the heart sick..”
So it happens, God know our woes, sees our hurt and understands that sometimes our hope is deferred.
“…but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:12
And alas, the promise of that desire fulfilled. A hope, not just fulfilled but transferred tangibly into a tree of life.
But what about now, if a hope is deferred, what do I focus on now? Where is my hope?
David answers us later:
“But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you” -Pslam 39:7
