Here is some encouragement in verse for whoever needs God’s help in one way or the other. As the featured scripture says, it is good to hope in God. Why? Because he is preserving us by His mercy and his steadfast love endures forever. Each new day gives us the opportunity to prove this again and again. And if there are lingering issues, we don’t run helter skelter, we hold onto God till He comes through for us. And He will!

“O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.” – Psalm 107:1

Waiting …
Waiting for the darkness to turn to light
Trusting …
Trusting that You’ll come through for me
Praying …
Praying that I cling to You without wavering
Hoping …
Hoping that I will soon see that new day
This, is my life!

Scriptural reference:

Lamentations 3:21-26
“21. This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
22. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
23. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
24. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.

25. The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
26. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.”

    It is good to wait on God for his miracle because he is the only one that can do all things.

  • Chioma Ezeudu

    I love this poem because I feel like the writer was able to view life from two standpoints: standpoint of God the creator looking down on us during our pains and standpoint of a true Christian during the time he or she is passing through hardships. the writer was able to do this by using words like Wait, Trust, Pray, and hope. these words to me are exactly what God demands from us anytime he looks at us during hard times. He looks down at us and sees us hurting and says, “wait, I have something better for you, just trust me, keep praying and hoping”. Another standpoint these words, Wait, Trust, Pray, and hope describe, is that of a good Christian who willingly decides to wait on God, trust God, Pray and still place his hopes on God especially during moments he sees himself passing through valleys and shadows of death. Generally, I will say that this is a Good poem that portrays the character of a good Christian and God’s expectations from us at the same time.
