For a little over two years these dish towels were tacked up on the wall of the guest room at Kevin and Kayla's house. The mustard and gray were going to be the colors for their nursery. Month after month when no baby came, the hope never came down.
I felt relief when I would take my suitcase into the room and see them still hanging there. No matter how discouraged they became, there was still a little bit of hope.
There were days when the hope seemed almost gone.
The towels never came down.
Let Your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us, even as we
HOPE in You.
Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who
HOPE in His steadfast love.
Oh that I might have my request, and that God would
fulfill my HOPE.
And you will feel secure, because there is HOPE; you will look around and take your rest in security.
Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? HOPE in God; for I shall again praise Him, my salvation.
For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my
HOPE is from Him.
For You, O Lord, are my HOPE, my trust, O Lord, from my youth.
But I will HOPE continually and will praise You yet more and more.
You are my hiding place and my shield; I HOPE in Your Word.
Blessed is she whose help is the God of Jacob, whose HOPE is in the
Lord her God.
