Heart of Hope




We do not wait with empty arms.

We do not wait sitting on our hands.

We do not wait in vain.

There is a promise for us.  A promise that He will fulfill.

We wait to be heard.
We wait, forgiven.
We wait with expectancy.
We wait because we will receive the promise.
We wait because mercy and redemption is coming.

We wait with a heart filled with hope.

Psalm 130
Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord;
Lord, hear my voice!
Let Your ears be attentive
To the voice of my supplications.
If You, Lord, should mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with You,
That You may be feared.
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
And in His word I do hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
More than those who watch for the morning—
Yes, more than those who watch for the morning.
O Israel, hope in the Lord;
For with the Lord there is mercy,
And with Him is abundant redemption.
And He shall redeem Israel
From all his iniquities.
