Intimacy Brings Hope
After that, every class and every homework assignment became part of my greater walk in hope. Even things I had learned or done previously, like Scriptural meditation, took on new dimensions for me. The teachings were so solid and rich. The homework, though, is where God was able to continue the work of what I was learning. One particular class, we were reading aloud from the Passion Translation and the Lord was so present. It was an intensely moving reminder of the Lord’s love for me personally and again, it brought about restoration of hope as I became more aware of His desire for unity with me.
I can’t say that I emerged completely from this season of dryness, but it is not a cause for discouragement any longer. I know He is present and that I can praise Him in all circumstances. I can actually cultivate joy, not just wish for more it! Best of all, everything I learned can be lived every day as I practice what we learned in personal prayer and ongoing conversation with God.
