What is the very worst condition a person can ever be in? I think the most wretched of all are those who have no hope. To see no possibility of improvement or purpose ever, seems to me the bleakest of all places.
These verses remind us that God will set things right in his time, and one day we will have a great story to tell. Hope. A wonderful gift, one of the greatest blessings, a precious jewel. Even if it all seems a bit out of sight just now.
