Joel 3:15-16 -- On Hope Amidst Disaster

The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.
The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel."
Joel 3:15-16

I like this assurance that God will be our hope even in the worst circumstances, when things seem literally blackest. That way, when we actually get to that point, we can remember that God is still there, and is our hope.

It's true literally and also figuratively.  When our own personal lives reach the lowest point, God is our hope, and our way back to light and sanity whenever we are lost.

Today, let's trust in God who is always there for us, making "an anchor to the souls of men" (Ether 12:4, Hebrews 6:19), helping us see the way out of even disasters of our own making. :)
