Hope That Doesn't Disappoint

He Gives Songs in the Night

When broken hearts fill with grief,
Even in darkest valley,
New songs are oft released.

Even in darkest night-time,
When eyes are bereft of light…
The One who sees and knows all
Still gives songs in the night.

The LORD, your God, is in your midst, a warrior who gives victory; he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. (Zephaniah 3: 17 RSV) 

My heart goes out to my sister Cathy, who is grieving the loss of her precious daughter Carrie, who went home to heaven the day after Christmas.

Cathy, you are ever in my prayers and my heart, and never far from my mind these days.

I pray these thoughts will  be a source of encouragement to you today. May you hear new songs in the night as you rest on the eternal promises of God and live in the resurrection hope of Jesus. We will see Carrie again.

I know there are many others who also grieve the loss of loved ones right now. May God give you an abundance of comfort and may you too hear songs in the night.

Weeping may endure for the night, but Joy comes in the morning.

  4. I have a sister, Glenda S. Mills.  An artist, alas, not a poet.  That lot fell to me.  I am pleased to read your words AND messages. Keep up the good work!
