Our Hope and God's Faithfulness

Hope Hymn - "O God, Our Help in Ages Past"

Our hope is built on nothing less than a foundation of God's faithfulness. Faith and a positive attitude will ease our efforts. I am aware that tomorrow is a question on hold, but God knows exactly how life will unfold.

There is this popular wise quote which says "Hope springs eternal," which reminds us that when everything else fails, there  is hope to hang on to.  When we are in the brink of a major life crisis, illness, separation from loved ones, bankruptcy, extreme loneliness, you get the picture... we will keep hanging on as long as we have hope within us.

Verse to reflect on:

Daniel 7:9
"As I looked, thrones were set in place,
and the Ancient of Days took his seat."

The hymn close to my heart is Isaac Watt's "O God, Our Help in Ages Past," from Psalm 90,  and indeed for believers, our hope for years to come.

Here's the first stanza of the hymn, word by Isaac Watts, and music attributed to William Croft:

"O God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal home!"

What flicker of hope can we keep burning within us today?
