love hope

“Love produces hope. If we, in our misery, are absolutely persuaded of God’s love, we will be confident that He will deliver us. Therefore, we hope in Him. We can wait as long as it takes, because we are sure that He hears us and loves us. He will come. He will deliver. In fact, He is on the move right now. God’s love inspires both an eagerness to be with Him and a confidence that He is true to his word, so we know He will come. It is these two – eagerness and confidence – that combine to form hope.”
Ed Welch (Depression: A Stubborn Darkness, p.78)
