Despair is where hope lives (Psalm 130)
Listen to this message on hope here, or via the trotters41 podcast. (21 minutes) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Some excerpts and quotes: “The prophetic poet asserts hope precisely in exile.” — Walter Brueggemann If you’re not really feeling it. If you’re not feeling happy-clappy-Jesus-is-alive-and-all-my-problems-are-fixed, then take heart, because that’s precisely where hope lives. “Hope expressed without knowledge of and participation in grief is likely to be false hope that does not reach despair. Thus…it is precisely those who know death most painfully who can speak hope most vigorously.” — Brueggemann We need this reminder. We need to remember that true hope is not just optimism. True hope is not a flimsy, fluffy thing. No, true hope, Biblical hope, sees it all. It sees the bad, the hard, the pain. It sees the depths and the darkness. It sees the world’s sin and my own sin. And it keeps on seeing… all the way to Christ. In the end, deep hope must be securely grounded in the character and love of God. “Speech about hope cannot be explanatory and scientifically argumentative; rather, it must be lyrical in the sense that it touches the hopeless person at many different points. More than that, however, speech about hope must be primarily theological.” — Brueggemann “Hoping is not dreaming.” “[Hope is] a confident, alert expectation that God will do what he said he will do. It is imagination put in the harness of faith.” – Eugene Peterson “Hope is a projection of the imagination; so is despair.” –Thornton Wilder ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Psalm 130 A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. 1From the depths of despair, O LORD, I call for your help. 2Hear my cry, O Lord. Pay attention to my prayer. 3LORD, if you kept a record of our sins, who, O Lord, could ever survive? 4But you offer forgiveness, that we might learn to fear you. 5I am counting on the LORD; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word. 6I long for the Lord more than sentries long for the dawn, yes, more than sentries long for the dawn. 7O Israel, hope in the LORD; for with the LORD there is unfailing love. His redemption overflows. 8He himself will redeem Israel from every kind of sin.

On Peace, Busyness, and Remembering that I’m not God (Psalm 131)
On March 18th, I was privileged to preach at ICA here in Phnom Penh. You can listen to the message here, or via our podcast on iTunes. We talked about three things that block peace and a few things that help bring peace. I also introduced a short song called Be Still, Be Quiet, based on Psalm 131. It’s at the end of the message around the 25 minute mark. all for ONE, Jonathan T. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “Psalm 131 is one of the shortest Psalms to read, but one of the longest to learn.” — Charles Spurgeon Psalm 131 My heart is not proud, Lord, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content. Israel, put your hope in the Lord both now and forevermore.

Avoiding Platitudes, Accepting Influence, and Loving Jesus (John 11:1-44)
Last Sunday I had the privilege of preaching at the ICF here in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. To listen to the message, click here, or view on iTunes. We looked at how Jesus allowed his emotions to be influenced (by a woman!), we talked about platitudes and why to NEVER use them, and we considered the different ways Jesus empathized with Mary and Martha. He mirrored each woman and responded very uniquely, in fact. We also talked about the one thing we must remember for this story to make sense: I am NOT the center of Christ’s universe. The Father is. Christ’s love for me is secondary and derivative. His primary goal is NOT to relieve my suffering or heal my disease. So, although he loves, he sometimes “stays.” — Jonathan T.
