Future, hopes

 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11


Hope (Photo credit: Ghayty)

It may have seemed impossible

All plans failed and the heart palpitating

Life’s meal sour and swallow impossible


Every drink of life’s water

Bitter as it may, and impure

Inability to eradicate its water


It is borne in the flesh

It returns are sores

Each pain revealed as fresh


A future? What future?

May be the heart’s lyrics

For years, like a denture


Jeremiah reminds my soul

Of a future yet unseen

But foretold by my Creator


I relinquish it all

And hold on to each word

My heart’s song is new


I believe is all I can say

My throat closes tight

As the tears bead down


I lift a word of praise

That of thanksgiving

And of rejoicing


For I know….

It is for a moment

My hope renewed

My hope alive
