There's a lot to unpack there, but really, I just wanted to share this small verse that I read in The Message version of the Bible. It's from 1 Samuel 2, in the midst of beautiful praise that Hannah is giving to God. I was struck by it's depth and truth... what a perfect picture of God and His redemptive power. Even in times of trial and hurt, we don't have to grieve like those who have no hope. Whether we're poor literally/financially or in our spirit because of unanswered prayers or a heart full of hurt, there is always fresh hope.
"He puts poor people on their feet again;
he rekindles burned-out lives with FRESH HOPE."
1 Samuel 2:7-8
