Hello Hope carriers,
I wanted to share this beautiful quote by Nikki Banas with you.
If you only carry one thing throughout your entire life, let it be hope. Let it be hope that better things are always ahead. Let it be hope that you can get through even the toughest of times. Let it be hope that you are stronger than any challenge that comes your way. Let it be hope that you are exactly where you are meant to be right now, and that you are on the path to where you are meant to be… Because during these times, hope will be the very thing that carries you through.Nikki Banas
If I were to add anything, I would say, let that hope be in God!
God cares! He sees you, and He knows everything that you face. He knows that they hurt you. He knows that you’re disappointed. He knows you’ve been broken. He knows everything about you, yet He offers hope!
Hope in this life; that you would know His sweet love and amazing grace; that you would experience the joy that permeates every dark place; that you would experience peace that transcends our understanding. The peace that acts as a garrison around our hearts and minds, a peace that comes through our relationship with Jesus.
Oh, and our Heavenly Father offers hope in eternity! Because of His great love, He sent His son, Jesus. And because of love, Jesus gave His life. He died, was buried, and rose from the grave, just for you! And we now have an eternal hope that only comes through a real relationship with Jesus, the hope of glory.
This passage brings me strength when I read it:
We also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Romans 5:3-6Romans 5:3-6 NKJV
Remember, whatever you are facing today, God offers hope! Try Jesus today. Let Him love you! Let His love flow to all of your hurting, achy places. He won’t disappoint you!
Your friend in the journey,
