From the laments of Job, Bishop Claude Alexander asks the questions: Where then is my hope? Can anyone find it?
After a week when the nation faced destruction from flooding and high winds brought by Hurricane Ida, wildfires in the West, and more deaths from the pandemic, Alexander points out that we’ve faced many issues that are out of our control. Life, for some, may seem like a puzzle of disconnected pieces. However, just as Job held on to his hope in God, we too can trust that God knows more than we can see or understand. God has more in mind for us.
Hope holds us as we grapple with life, not knowing the full picture. We trust and believe that God has more in mind for us as he shifts us, purifies us, and tries us so we can meet the gold standard he has for each of us. Alexander encourages us to hold on to hope until morning comes.
Scripture: Job 17 NLT
