Waiting for hope

Work was fine, Community Group was good, but otherwise I'm having a harder time today than usual. Comes in waves, I suppose, and it had been a while since one hit. Doesn't have to be a reason beyond what is. Cool night air and the sheen of wet pavement are small, welcome comforts. Difficult to trust God with my heart instead of running to some distraction. The war would make a fine one just now.

But hope...hope is elsewhere.

We have waited eagerly for the Lord;
He is our help and our shield.
   For in Him our hearts are glad,
   because we have trusted in His holy name.
Let Thy unfailing love, O Lord, rest upon us,
   as we have put our hope in Thee.

—Psalm 33:20-22
