Hope Arises

My eyes open to the morning glow of a new day casting light into my room. I lay still blinking back the sleep. I feel the quiet of my soul. Something has changed.
What is it?

Am I…
Is this peace?
Hope—I thought I would never feel you again. But here you are. Settling back in where the stuff of life pushed out.
And for the first time in a long time I believe everything is going to be okay…
...I believe I am going to be okay.

As the sun rises in your day, I pray Hope also rises within you.

Today let this melody of hope wash over you and together let’s us walk in His promise.

On the journey with you,
Walk in the Promise by Jeremy Riddle (Bethel Music)

Our souls wait in silence
In rest and in quiet for You, spirit
In trust and dependence

We walk in the promise of You coming
With hope and healing in Your wings
With fire and with wind, You fall on us again

Here we are waiting for this house to be shaken
For the boldness to carry Your name to the nations
Your signs and Your wonders to go now before us

For the weight of Your glory to rest as we lift You up
We lift You up, be magnified in us


  1. He takes us through seasons. He challenges us, stretches us and stretches us some more :) He grows us and then He woos/moves us forward in our journey, giving us peace, the living Presence of His Hope, and re"new"ing our vision. He is sooo faithful! Blessed by your post! Blessed by your journey!

  2. Beautiful, Laura. Hope is arising!
