Quiet Time: I Looked for Sorrow and Found Hope

I Looked for Sorrow and Found Hope

Read: Hebrews 10:32-39

Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. – Hebrews 10:35

This verse brought me comfort after the elementary school tragedy yesterday, in Connecticut, Friday, December 14, 2012.

My daughter, Candice, keeps her large study bible on my book shelf in the extra bedroom. After a long and restless night, I wanted to hear what God had to say about sorrow. So, I grabbed Candice’s “Application” study bible. As I flipped through the pages I unexpectedly came across the passage in Hebrews.

So, although I never located the application for “sorrow” I did find one for hope.

“Faith means resting on what Christ has done for us in the past, but it also means trusting Him for what He will do for us in the present and in the future.” – Application study bible notes
