I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, ‘the Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him.’
“Live, then, and be happy, beloved children of my heart, and never forget, that until the day God will deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is contained in these two words, ‘Wait and Hope.’”
— Alexander Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo
This may sound crazy, but I’m looking forward to these next four years. My faith is going to be tested much further than I can imagine. Can’t wait to see how God uses me to glorify Him through this chaos. That is the only hope that is keeping me going right now.
