March Hope Whispers

“For wherever I am,
though far away at
the ends of the earth,

I will cry to You for help.
When my heart is faint
and overwhelmed,

lead me to the mighty,
towering Rock of safety.”

Psalm 61:2 TLB

Lead Me to the Rock

“God doesn’t sweep the broken up into a dustpan and discard it. In order to reach the broken in our world, God Himself broke, allowing His own Son to die a broken death on a cross for us. God brings beauty in the broken. God loves the broken. God uses the broken.” ~ Elisa Morgan

When tragedy makes its unwelcome appearance and we are deaf to everything but the shriek of our own agony – when courage flies out the window and the world seems to be a hostile, menacing place – it is the hour of our Gethsemane. No word, however sincere, offers any comfort or consolation… and yet it may happen in these most desperate trials of our human existence that beyond any rational explanation, we may feel a nail-scarred hand clutching ours.~ Brennan Manning

Nature is a Retreat of Hope

The earth has
music for those
who listen.”

Shakespeare
