|the Lord is my Shepherd, by Stu Mendelson|
So why, in the dead of night, do I have hope?
I see Jesus.
He is here, bright as day. He knows the outcome of all this, even if He's not telling me what it is right now.
He knows Stu, knows what he needs, knows when he needs it. He reminds me that there are times beyond counting when He has showed up when there seemed to be no hope at all and deftly turned the situation on its head, showing everyone with eyes Who's in charge.
I see Jesus. He is real. He has power I can't understand. And I am walking right up to him, confident of his love for me and confessing: Lord, I need a big, fat miracle. Will you redeem this situation?
I can hear him saying, a smile in his voice "I thought you'd never ask"
