A misty fog appears
and details disappear
but are still there
beyond the fog.
A fog of troubles may appear--
hope almost disappear.
Is hope still there
beyond the fog?
What strength do I have that I should continue to hope?
What is my future, that I should be patient?
--Job 6:11 HCSB
For the oppressed will not always be forgotten;
the hope of the afflicted will not perish forever.
--Psalm 9:8 HCSB
May Your faithful love rest on us, LORD, for we put our hope in You.
--Psalm 33:22, HCSB
