“But, beloved, we are convinced of better things concerning you…” Hebrews 6:9

holding on to hope“This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil” Hebrews 6:19

“We’re going to see Him face to face, such a hope we have” a very dear friend wrote these words over a quarter of a century ago and sparked in me a glow of anticipation. Twenty-five years or so later, that spark has become a blaze that burns in  me through every shift and shadow that life has brought and will keep bringing, until that blessed day when I will look into the eyes of my Saviour and it will be for real. I will feel His breath on my cheek and see His smile.

Never give up, today that promise is closer than it was yesterday and tomorrow it will be closer still. Jesus is your prize and you are His reward and joy. He endured the cross, despising its shame for you…
