Happily ever after

Fairy tales. Children are hardly permitted time to make believe anymore. That innocent and magical imagination is being cut short and replaced with stark realism. Television and movie makers have transformed our childhood stories into something dark and sinister.
The cavalry no longer comes. There is no clear cut good guy in a white hat. In fact, today’s hero is NOT such a good guy! It’s often hard to tell him from the villain.
With this ominous cloud covering everything, where’s the hope? The Psalmist declared to his soul, “hope in God, who is the health/help of your countenance.”
The Christian can look to the hills from whence your help cometh, a poetic picture of looking to the One where our strength comes from.
In God, the cavalry IS on the way! Our hero with the white hat actually wears a robe of righteousness-white, dipped in blood. Romans 15:13 says that the God of hope will fill us with joy and peace in believing by the Holy Spirit abounding in hope. Hope comes from God Himself! We can trust Him and rest peacefully in Him.
