WHISPERING HOPE

When I was child the beautiful hymn ‘Whispering Hope’ was sung to me.  Written by Septimus Winner under the pseudonym of Alice Hawthorne it reflects the Hebs 6v19 Scripture.

THIS HOPE WE HAVE AS AN ANCHOR OF THE SOUL, BOTH STEADFAST AND SURE ENTERS THE ‘INNER PARTS’ BEHIND THE VEIL.    

                                          This is the place where CHRIST is now seated beside God the Father.

Today, I share again with you the beautiful refrain of this hymn.  

‘Soft as the voice of an angel breathing a  message of HOPE is the gentle wind in my heart now,

‘Whispering Hope oh, whispering Hope.   How welcome Thy Voice, Oh how welcome Thy Voice.  making my heart, making my heart making my heart in its sorrow rejoice.’ 

Do you believe in angels?

I saw angels when I was eight years old.     (at a funeral)  They were somehow ‘compacted’ in the corner behind the coffin. I made the mistake of telling adults who were kind but (thought I was a dear, little child).   I know what I SAW.

From then on, I kept most of my longing for ‘higher’ very private. (Also what I SAW).

Yes, I believe in angels.   I also believe in demons of evil.

I thank God that God the Holy Spirit is on the earth to live in me and through me.

Yes, I believe in one Lord God. ALMIGHTY.      and yes I believe that his enemy is defeated but is stirring up this world in an attempt to gain earthly authority.  BUT BUT BUT….BUT…..

I also believe for all who will lift their hearts and lives beyond the hype there are

Angels – MESSENGERS always to tell us and point us ever to the HOPE only found in our risen SAVIOUR. 

May your day be  blessed by His Presence. a-men.

 

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    Thank you Faye, Yes Ibelieve in Hope, ever being whispered to me. I believe in Hope for this world oof people who at the moment are HELLbent on their own way. I believe in a GOD who loves this world so much He sent His SON to live in it for a short period to teach us to be like Him, and then be crucified taking with Him all of this worlds sin and ugliness to Hell stripping deztg and hell and the devil of its power. Yes I believe in Angels and have seen them I believe in Demons and have seen them. I encourage you. these three remain, FAITH HOPE AND LOVE, and the greatest of these is LOVE.
