As I pondered the words of the song, I wrote a poem, expressing my desire to live in the freedom that comes when I trust in God alone.
What happens when we praise God? Not only is He honored, but praising God reminds us of hope, filling us with joy and love.
Hope is an interesting word. People may sometimes say they hope something will happen when what they mean is they wish it will happen. The hope we find in the Bible is not wishful thinking but a sure and steadfast hope that will never disappoint.
Sometimes, God doesn’t rescue us out of our tumultuous clouds and storms but strengthens us and goes with us through them, giving hope.
We all need hope because there is so much uncertainty in the world today. Hope reminds us of truth.
What if we could become more like children who have such childlike wonder. Maybe we, too, would feel joy and hope with even simple things.
No matter what the circumstances, we must always hope. Life can be and often is very hard, but God gives us peace through His Son, Jesus.
Enduring faith comes from a sure hope, because it is not based on me or my actions, but on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
How can we be living a life of hope amidst the pain? What if, Instead of letting it rule us, we use it to drive us closer to God?
God did not suddenly decide to offer hope and rescue us. The eternal hope He offers was well thought out by Him before we were even born.
