When Meg Cannon asked me to be a part of her project to publish a years devotions for young women -I jumped at the chance. My teenage years were nothing if not fraught, and I can remember reading and rereading Beth Redman’s “Soul Sista” as I tried to find God in the midst of the chaos. It was brilliant – but having something new to read and chew over every day, pointing me to hope and to God would have been amazing. I love this poem written by Meg which features in the book.
I hope that Hope Rising enables young women to find the God of hope in the middle of all that life can bring; from social media to relationships, suicide to stress, happiness to despair and everything in between.
Our God is Immanuel, with us in the middle of it all.
