HOPE IN THE FACE OF DARKNESS

The Bible proclaims hope in the face of the darkness of circumstances... It does not promise that we won’t go through difficulties or that we won’t experience pain. But these will not be the final word. So the psalmist writes, “Weeping may linger for the night, but joy comes with the morning.” (Psalm 30:5a) The writer of Lamentations, seeing the destruction of the city of Jerusalem in 586 BC, confesses his overwhelming grief and sorrow but goes on to say, “But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning. “ (Lamentations 3:21-23)
