“Think of yourself as a seed patiently wintering in the earth; waiting to come up a flower in the Gardener’s good time, up into the real world, the real waking.”
“Without hope the heart would break.”
We who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
May He come down like rain upon the mown grass,
Like showers that water the earth.
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23
They waited for Me as for the rain,
And opened their mouth as for the spring rain.
