This fist isn’t for fighting;
it is for holding onto hope.
Hope tucked in here tight
like a salty Kleenex.
Out of these clenched fingers
rises an opposable.
I give you a thumbs up
not because I need a ride
but to give our spirits a ride.
You are not alone.
I’m for you.
I believe in you.
“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.
When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I’ll listen.
When you come looking for me, you’ll find me.
Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed.” God
Jeremiah 29:11-13 The Message Bible
