Hope’s Cord

 

Like Rahab’s scarlet cord
hanging from her window

I am your lifeline
of hope

no matter your past
or how messy life is

reach for Me for I
will hold.

*********

You establish a lifeline of hope for me.

“Now swear to me by the LORD that you will be kind to me and my family since I have helped you. Give me some guarantee that when Jericho is conquered, you will let me live, along with my father and mother, my brothers and sisters, and all their families . . .”

“Before they left, the men told her . . . ‘When we come into the land, you must leave this scarlet rope hanging from the window through which you let us down. And all your family members – your father, mother, brothers, and all your relatives – must be here inside the house . . .’ “

” ‘I accept your terms, ‘ she replied. And she sent them on their way, leaving the scarlet rope hanging from the window.”

Joshua 2:12,13,18,21
