When Life is Crazy, There is Always Hope
When life is crazy…there is always hope.
The world is a little upside down, isn’t it? The virus, social distancing, statistics, quarantine, restricted travel, and closed borders. So many voices crowding for a spot in our heads, and eventually it makes its way to our hearts.
These are the days of slow mornings, empty calendars, and fear. Desperate for news, we run to our phones, devices, computers, and miss it. There is so much we will miss if we do not see what is true.
The news will not provide it.
Turn off the noise and be still. Not just for the sake of silence, but for the sake of hearing. God’s Word might not be something on your radar right now, but listen. God is speaking. Not audibly. Not in the media, friends, emptiness, loneliness, or even grief. God is speaking in His Word.
Although there are plenty of options for you out there in the world wide web to hear God’s Word, I wanted to provide just a few minutes of peace for your heart. I recorded the following audio devotion because I needed this reminder. It is based on Psalm 90, which is probably one of my favorite psalms. Please enjoy this free audio here. It is six minutes long and I pray it blesses your heart.

This audio was recorded right here in my home in Honduras. The words I wrote are taken from a book I published last year with other writers. Several friends come together to create a thirty-one day devotional called “Songs of Hope: 31 Days in the Psalms.” We wanted to create something that would help you find hope. May you be blessed. There is always hope.
Here are some of the words I wrote.
Psalm 90 was written at the end of Moses’ life, and he wanted to leave the Israelites with this promise: “Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations.” (Psalm 90:1, ESV) As people were about to enter the Promised Land, Moses’ words to them were: “Don’t get too comfortable; find true rest in God.” A physical home can be a beautiful thing. But sometimes our earthly homes are filled with strife and sadness. No matter what kind of earthly home we live in, a place of rest is waiting for us.
You can get the ebook right here for just $7. I pray you can be reminded of what is true during this time of uncertainty. We wrote these devotionals almost a year ago, but the truth in the middle of the words are still true.
God word is still true.
