Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our HOPE is in you alone.
So often in our conversations the word "hope" is part of it. I hope you feel better, I hope you get the job, I sure hope I get a better sleep tonight, etc.
According to the webster dictionary the meaning of hope is a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen. As a Christ follower, I know the meaning of hope is beyond what the dictionary offers. Our hope lies with God alone, that HE is in all our circumstandes, even when we can't see Him or feel Him. Imagine how powerful our prayers are because of that Hope we place in God. Life doesn't always turn out as we hope for, does it? Challenging, unpleasant and unwanted things happen in life. May we find our true HOPE in the Him alone.
“Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will never be shaken.”
