I hope because I remember.
I didn’t want to walk through the fire. To stay there for months and years on end. But the fire was where I found God.
I didn’t want to be bound. To kneel before God, the Almighty Judge, and plead for deliverance day after day. But in my bondage I found sight and saw Him clearly.
I didn’t want to be pitied. To be in need of charity and assistance. To have my life scrutinized and examined. In my pitiable state I found grace and learned of its power.
I have not forgotten and because I remember, I hope.
And those who have hope, survive.
