I cried out to God:
How can I hope for anything when it feels like all my hopes are dashed and trampled . . . like nobody cares . . . like You don’t care?

And He said to me:
Do not be afraid
Stay the course
I am with you
My delight is in you
I rejoice over you
I’ve forgiven all your sins
As high as the heavens are above the earth
     so great is My love for you
From everlasting to everlasting My love is with you 

I wait for the Lord
In His word I put my hope
With the Lord is unfailing love
With Him is redemption
