Hope Rising

Today the new season starts. It's a new semester for students starting school. It's the time when I plan and adjust my and our daily and weekly schedule, trying to figure out what needs adjusting, what are the priorities, and how it will all fit together.

It's a time that can be really overwhelming, and hard, and this time even more so as so much seems up in the air. One pretty vital staff member is leaving. Financing and planning for the students is needing to change. Our office is needing some gifts and abilities that I don't have, and don't know how train for. It could be a pretty overwhelming time.

Yet today, I sense hope rising. I put my trust in God's unfailing love and faithfulness. He knows. He has brought me and us to this point now. I'm thankful that He is calling me to spend a lot more time with Him and learning from Him, and at the same has me in circumstances where I cannot forget that I desperately need Him. He will direct and lead. He will give insight for the rhythms of life that need to be in place to keep me hearing in His presence. He will give ideas, maybe even very fresh ones, that meet the needs. He will strengthen me for the work of each day, for it pleases Him to make me stong. And I can joyfully walk in the light of His presence each day.

Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship,
for they will walk in the light of your presence, LORD.
They rejoice all day long in your wonderful reputation.
They exult in your righteousness.
You are their glorious strength.
It pleases you to make us strong.
Yes, our protection comes from the LORD,
and he, the Holy One of Israel, has given us our king.

Ps 89:15-18 NLT
