Heart Strings, Hope, Light

Borrowed Hope

I was driving around the other night just past dusk, and I needed a bit of borrowed hope to remember in the times of darkness that seemed to envelope me.

Suddenly, I began to notice the warmth of the light emanating from homes, penetrating the darkness. And then it settled into my soul that I should remember what God said in the light, in the midst of the dark night of the soul. To hang on and pray earnestly.

The next morning gave me borrowed hope this week from Karen Wheaton. She spoke about Abraham and Sarah, and the promise that God made to him and her, and one of the verses that she shared was Genesis 21:1. She said to insert our name into it instead of Sarah.

Here is that verse:

“The Lord kept his word and did for Sarah exactly what he had promised.”
‭‭Genesis‬ ‭21‬:‭1‬

Then when I needed it most hope sprang up in Romans 4:21, and tied up the gift nicely with a bow.

“He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭4‬:‭21‬ ‭NLT‬‬

If you need some hope today beloved, I pray these verses bless you as they did me when I needed a reminder that God is faithful to do as He promised and insert your name.


Melinda who is convinced.
