I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry Devotions. True Strength

Spring breaks
Winter’s icy grasp
Not with ice and wintry blows
But with gentle, steady warmth
That lets us know
Gentle persistence
Defeats the mightiest foe.

And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. 1 Kings 19:11-12

When I’m tempted to give up, help me to remember You never give up on me, Lord. Help me to listen to that still small voice of direction and not to give up on You, myself or others. Amen.
