Hope quote by John Calvin

We should ask God to increase our hope when it is small, awaken it when it is dormant, confirm it when it is wavering, strengthen it when it is weak and raise it up when it is overthrown.

John Calvin

Lend Me Your Hope #poem

This poem was in my memories today so I wanted to repost it 😁

Lend me your hope for awhile,
I seem to have mislaid mine.
Lost and hopeless feelings accompany me daily,
pain and confusion are my companions.

I know not where to turn;
looking ahead to future times
does not bring forth
images of renewed hope.
I see troubled times, pain-filled days,
and more tragedy.

Lend me your hope for awhile,
I seem to have mislaid mine,
Hold my hand and hug me;
listen to all my ramblings,
recovery seems so far distant.
The road to healing
seems like a long and lonely one.

Lend me your hope for awhile,
I seem to have mislaid mine.
Stand by me, offer me your presence,
your heart, and your love.
Acknowledge my pain,
it is so real and ever present.
I am overwhelmed
with sad and conflicting thoughts.

Lend me your hope for awhile;
a time will come when I will heal,
and I will share my renewal,
hope, and love with others.
