The Golden Cord...

Nearly a year ago, a dear friend of mine gave me this little gem of a book, telling me that it always seemed to "meet me right where I'm at every day". It has been on my nightstand ever since until recently I picked it up and realized what she meant and what I had been missing! Its short passages have been refreshment for my weary and busy soul these days. I hope this one will refresh you too.

Hope is a golden cord connecting you to heaven. This cord helps you to hold your head high, even when multiple trials are buffeting you. I never leave your side, and I never let go of your hand. But without the cord of hope, your head may slump and your feet may shuffle as you journey uphill with Me. Hope lifts your perspective from your weary feet to the glorious view you can see from the high road. You are reminded that the road we're traveling together is ultimately a highway to heaven. When you consider this radiant destination, the roughness or smoothness of the road ahead becomes much less significant. I am training you to hold in your heart a dual focus: My continual Presence and the hope of heaven.

Be glad for ALL God is planning for you.
Be patient in trouble and always be prayerful.
Romans 12:12 (NLT)
