Hope in things unseen…
that they might come to pass,
for the bounty yet unknown…
for we know from where it comes,
to see the uncommon present itself…
the manifestation of God’s will-
this is from where our hope
should be secured…
found in God’s own hands.
Recently, very recently, Naghmeh Abedini met with President Obama, in Boise, Idaho. This meeting happened on January 21st, 2015, and after the meeting Naghmeh had this to say (find it at this link here). Boise is the home town of Pastor Saeed Abedini, the American Pastor being held in an Iranian prison… for his belief in Jesus Christ.

Psalm 5:2 KJV Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.

Matthew 5:44 KJV But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Pastor Saeed has also made a statement, about the meeting with the President and his wife, and I would like to share it with you here.
God regards the heart, and hypocrisy is more odious than open inconsistency. Men’s best devices and reliances are vain compared with God’s, or without His aid ( Proverbs 19:21 , Psalms 20:7 , 33:17 ). [Reference #27, 30 & 31 (this link) at the bottom]
