Glimmer

Silver Lining through the Clouds

We often don’t really know why things turn out the way they do.

Sometimes a heart is left aching and although we know that “He does all things well”, at times all we have to hold on to is a glimmer of hope. And the thread that connects that hope to our hearts is thinner than a strand.

Yet the glimmer can grow into a silver lining of promise, and eventually the sun bursts forth, although veiled by shadow only a short time before.

This is hope. We cannot always choose when or how this process will work in our lives and hearts.

Yet when the One Who holds our lives and destinies is given leeway to hold our hearts, our dreams, our hopes, then we have nothing to fear. For His grasp of a situation is not a perception, but true reality. A reality that He can dispense to our fragile hearts, bestowing joy in spite of sorrow, beauty from ashes, and victory after it seems all hope is lost.

Hold on to that glimmer.

Hold on for that promise.

It is yours, even if you have to wrestle the angel before receiving the promise. Do not let go of the angel, even if he bears sorrow or tears. Hold on and he will bear you up and take you to a place of beauty, promise and hope—your future.

Your purpose.
