Monday: Hope

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7

Nature tells stories. I remember a few years ago, the frost came in May and destroyed many of the apple blossoms. Despite the loss, some blossoms remained. God’s great power was revealed. His mercy shown during times of difficulty.

The call came last week, of a reoccurring cancer. My family had almost forgotten, several decades ago, how the claw of cancer had affected us. But now, the shadow of gloom seems to be encompassing our lives again.

How will we handle it? What will become of things? Who will we look to?

I remembered I had prayed, years ago, asking God’s intervention to allow my sister to see her children grow. God honored that prayer request, and filled us with years of togetherness.

None of us know what the months ahead will carry. But we should know, who carries us through each day. It’s God Almighty!
