A Jungle
by Max Lucado

It’s a jungle out there! And for many, hope is in short supply. What would it take to restore your hope?

Though the answers are abundant, three come quickly to mind. The first would be someone who knows the way out. And from that someone you need vision.  Someone to look you in the face and say, “Don’t give up! There’s a better place than this.” Most importantly, you need direction. If you have a person with direction who can take you to the right place—ah, then you have one who can restore your hope.

To use David’s words in Psalm 23, “HE restores my soul!” God, our Shepherd, majors in restoring hope to the soul! Loneliness diminishes because you have fellowship. Despair decreases because you have vision. Confusion begins to lift because you have direction. Please note– you haven’t left the jungle. It hasn’t changed, but you have. You have hope!
