We need hope. I recently experienced even more vision loss. There is nothing that can be done about it. So now what? Like before, with my previous diagnosis, I did not lose hope. Oh, I am not saying I have my moments when I cry out; but I did not want to live my days being negative every single day. In the future, there may be a helpful discovery regarding the optic nerve. But not today. Yet, I remain hopeful.

Psalm 88, my reading in Lent for today, is super negative. There is nothing from the Psalmist that is hopeful or positive. I am not lingering in that space today. I choose hope. If you are experiencing a low moment or a dark space, don’t give up. You, too, can choose hope.
