I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

 

 

The Lord is my source of hope.

His plan for me is full of hope as I trust in Him.

I can trust Him with my whole life.

Every concern….

Even in the bright and dark places,

I can put my whole life in His loving hands.

He can transform the struggle into strength

He can transform the worry into peace

In Him, my life becomes beautiful

The Lord is my source of hope.

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.  Jeremiah 29:11

So be strong and courageous, all you who put your hope in the Lord!  Psalm 31:24

We experience seasons where discouragement seem to take up residence in our hearts. Discouragement is not of God and should be resisted with all of our might.  Jesus came that we might have life, abundant life.  He came that we could live a life full of HOPE, PEACE AND LOVE.  We can put our complete trust in Him. We can trust Him with the heartbreak.  We can trust Him with every wound in body and spirit.  We can trust Him with the disappointment.  We can trust Him with every inch of our existence.  Our lives in His hands can transform the hurt into healing and the discouragement into hope.  We can trust Him that things will get better.

Dear God,

We thank you for another day.  We thank you that you came to give us abundant life.  Our hearts are heavy Lord and we know that discouragement is not of you.  We are releasing the burden of heartbreak, disappointment and depression to you.  We are ready to receive the blessings of hope, peace and love into our hearts today that comes through a relationship with you.  You are the Living God that brings deliverance and salvation.  We are so thankful for this abundant blessing.  We will nurture peace, love and hope through a closer walk with you.  We are thankful that we are never alone and that You are available to us every step of the way.  We receive that gift of hope that things will get better. 

In Jesus Name –

Amen





Sufficient

DSCF0398But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.    II Corinthians 12:9

Whatever today brings it is what the Lord has provided and it is sufficient for me.  The list of things I have to be thankful for far outweigh my faith wish list.  God has provided this day, this time and this place for me.  I am so thankful for every blessing.  The peace in my heart, the love He has for His children provides joy and confidence that He is working things out for my good.  It is a good day to employ contentment and to immerse my thoughts into the goodness of God’s grace.  It is sufficient for me.

Because of the extravagance of those revelations, and so I wouldn’t get a big head, I was given the gift of a handicap to keep me in constant touch with my limitations. Satan’s angel did his best to get me down; what he in fact did was push me to my knees. No danger then of walking around high and mighty! At first I didn’t think of it as a gift, and begged God to remove it. Three times I did that, and then he told me,

My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness.

Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness. Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size—abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become.  II Corinthians 12:7-10 MSG
