Lament, and Hope (Reblog: Permission to Feel)

It has been 3+ years since 276 young girls have been free. On the eve of July 4th, ISAIAH 62 PRAYER MINISTRY wanted to remember and lament the bondage of the Chibok girls. 

But, ISAIAH 62 PRAYER MINISTRY also wanted to offer this thought: it is okay to lament the three years that have been stolen from the 163 young Chibok girls freed, and the 3+ years and counting that 113 Chibok girls still are experiencing of bondage. 

But there is Hope in Jesus. In Joel 2:25-27, Jesus promises to restore.

This is the Hope for the Chibok girls.

That He will repay, and is repaying, what the enemy has stolen. As we pray for the Chibok girls this week, may we keep this Hope in mind. ❤
