“But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you.” (Psalm 39:7)

The songwriter and author of this lyric was acquainted with pain and trouble. He understood, as we do, the openness that comes with plans being shot and profits lost.

Hard times break us open to openness—to willingness.

“Ok, fine, God.”

“Where to now?”

“What’s next?”

“Do you have a new plan, agenda, focus?”

“I’m in.”

“My real hope, after all, is in You.”
