Produces Hope

we rejoice in our sufferings,

and endurance produces character, and character produces hope."

One thing I ask from the Lord

Psalm of David:
4 One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
5 For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.
6 Then my head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music to the Lord.
7 Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
be merciful to me and answer me.
8 My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
Your face, Lord, I will seek.
9 Do not hide your face from me,
do not turn your servant away in anger;
you have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me,
God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
the Lord will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, Lord;
lead me in a straight path
because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
for false witnesses rise up against me,
spouting malicious accusations.
13 I remain confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord."
~Psalm 27

This is at one of my favorite spot's in the whole world. It's called "The Burren"
and it's on the Atlantic westside of Ireland. My beloved Ireland ...
In the background a part of the great Galway Bay.
This is ancient land and even kind of holy ground ..

Only You could make it

Beara Peninsula, Ireland

"This life has shown me how we're mended and how we're torn 
How it's okay to be lonely as long as you're free 
Sometimes my ground was stoney 
And sometimes covered up with thorns 
And only You could make it what it had to be"
~Rich Mullins
