a beloved bible...


along with a cross - crocheted by my grandmother so - very many years ago - i’d thought both had been lost - in the flooding back in january - because i hadn’t laid eyes - on either for months now - so many of my books - had been decimated by - the sheer amount of water - which took mere minutes to flood - my apartment leaving massive - destruction in its wake - so i’d given up hope

but then i happened to open - one of 2 final boxes - and there amidst some - other things lay this - my lost bible and beloved cross - needless to say - i wept - it reminded me of these verses

‘for i know the plans i have for you,’ declares the lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and i will listen to you. you will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.’ jeremiah 29:11-13 (niv)

all my abba wants - is to give me hope - and a future with that hope - he knew i’d been longing - for that bible but more - for the cross since grandma had made it - and it was irreplaceable - throughout the whole ordeal - with the flood - he provided for me - giving me a new home - when i thought i was going - to be on the street - helping restore my possessions - after losing almost - 70% of everything - i owned, but most importantly - giving me hope - it’s what we all want - hope - which is why i can always call it...


happy day.....
