My Hope: a #haiku 

This week Ronovan brings two new words, as he does weekly, for our haiku inspiration: crystal and hope. 

Edit 01/17/16- I use the word hope here in the biblical sense, which means a certain, assured, knowledge, not the “pie in the sky” hope of today’s language. My Hope: a haiku 

crystal clear I see
the veil rent top to bottom
my hope is secured

Upon seeing the words my mind went immediately to my faith in the completed works of Jesus and my security in Him. 

“And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit. And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭27:50-51‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“Since we have such a hope, we are very bold, not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze at the outcome of what was being brought to an end. But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed.”

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭3:12-16‬ ‭ESV‬‬
