1 Kings 19.19
Elijah went straight out
we will go and do what you tell us right away! no time to waste, no time to linger on our failures or what. thank you that we always have a second, third, infinite chances with you. you are the only one who could give hope beyond hope, who we can hold on to no matter what, who we can truly bring things to and honour and worship in the midst of everything. thank you, lord, that you are not just a figment of our imagination - no - you are more than real, and we can really hold on to you, look to you for provision and generosity and rest. praise you, God!
