Looking for My Hope

We’ve been looking at Psalm 130:7, and seeing that we must put our hope in the Lord. Here’s a devotional poem from Christ-follower Rena Himick seeing the same. It’s called “Looking for My Hope.”

Not in my car,
not in my house,
not at the bank —
my hope’s not there.

Not with my friends,
not in my church,
not in love —
my hope’s not there.

Not in myself,
though there I look
a very long time —
my hope’s not there.

I’ve looked and looked
and now I know:
my hope’s in Him
who brought me here.

My Savior holds
my hope secure:
Jesus, King, is
Keeper of My Hope!
