Thank you for the information about the material for which I asked, I appreciate it! May you have a very blessed day and weekend! Regards, C

Dit sal erg onbeskof van my wees as ek nie vir eers net dankie kan sê nie. 'n Groot DANKIE vir jou spoedige antwoord. Na my eerste stap, wil ek jou meedeel dat die geestelike materiaal reeds feite vir my opgehelder het. Ek is verheug dat ek hierdie materiaal met ander mag deel. Mag hierdie waarheid nie vir myself hou nie. Baie dankie. Groot waardering. Groete L

How AWESOME is that! Thank you for praying for me and the material I need to work through. I know God places special people, like yourself, in my life for a reason AND there you are! There is always hope prompted by God when you are at your lowest. Regards, SB

Thank you so much for your email. You spoke directly to me. I love what you said when you said "it seems that you measure your own worth with having successful relationships with men". That was very profound for me. I also read the scriptures which reminded me about how God sees me and how much He loves me. That's all that matters. RL

You are truly sent by God to minister to me. Everything you say makes sense to me. It's exactly what I need to hear. Thank you so much for taking the time to write to me and pray for me. You are a blessing. May God richly bless you. R

"... To take the one string you have left and to have the audacity to hope…”

See painting on HOPE by Watts 1886: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hope_%28painting%29

The painting by George Frederic Watts shows a female allegorical figure of Hope. Hope is traditionally identifiable through the attribute of an anchor, but Watts took a more original approach. In his painting, she is depicted sitting on a globe, blindfolded, clutching a wooden lyre with only one string left intact. She sits in a hunched position, with her head leaning towards the instrument, perhaps so she can hear the faint music she can make with the sole remaining string. According to Watts, "Hope need not mean expectancy. It suggests here rather the music which can come from the remaining chord". The desolate atmosphere is emphasised by Watts's soft brushwork, creating a misty, ethereal scene, in tones of green, brown and grey.

The painting was the subject of a lecture by Dr Frederick G. Sampson in Richmond, Virginia, in the late 1980s, who described it as a study in contradictions. The lecture was attended by Jeremiah Wright and inspired him to give a sermon in 1990 on the subject of Hope – "with her clothes in rags, her body scarred and bruised and bleeding, her harp all but destroyed and with only one string left, she had the audacity to make music and praise God ... To take the one string you have left and to have the audacity to hope ... that's the real word God will have us hear from this passage and from Watt's painting." Having attended the sermon, Barack Obama later adopted the phrase "audacity of hope" as the title for his 2004 Democratic National Convention keynote address, and as the title of his second book.
