Hoping Against Hope

Each morning of the workweek begins the same way. I awaken and do a brief metabolism-boosting, heart-rate increasing workout, eat a fast breakfast, and head for the bus stop. Once on the public transit behemoth, I have 40-50 minutes to spend at my leisure, which usually serves as quiet time with the Lord.

I will not go into the details, but between my jobs, writing, and navigating other hardship, things have been a picture of the old adage: when it rains,it pours. My hope is that April showers will lead to a blossoming May, but this has not been the case thus far. My prayers and Scriptural engagement have been necessary for my survival; and yesterday, while praying for my wife and household, I felt a surge of hope that the coming summer season would be a time of unprecedented flourishing in our lives, beyond expectation.
