Lamentations…(Now there’s a good devotion for some encouragement!)

Seriously!!! And I was going to write something also. But …. God’s Word is more powerful! His Word brings life. My words just get in the way and muddy what He’s trying to say! Let this portion of Scripture speak to you way down deep!

Lamentations 3:25-33

God proves to be good to the man who passionately waits,
   to the woman who diligently seeks.
It’s a good thing to quietly hope,
   quietly hope for help from God.
It’s a good thing when you’re young
   to stick it out through the hard times.

 28-30When life is heavy and hard to take,
   go off by yourself. Enter the silence.
Bow in prayer. Don’t ask questions:
   Wait for hope to appear.
Don’t run from trouble. Take it full-face.
   The “worst” is never the worst.

 31-33Why? Because the Master won’t ever
   walk out and fail to return.
If he works severely, he also works tenderly.
   His stockpiles of loyal love are immense.
He takes no pleasure in making life hard
