Thankful Thursday-Hope


Hello everyone, welcome to another Thankful Thursday. I pray that your hearts are overflowing with thankfulness. Iris chose hope as the theme this week, such a great thing to be thankful for. Where would I be without hope? Hope saves me from giving up, or giving in. I have placed all my hope in Jesus, and He never lets me down. H-Having O-Only P-Praise E-Everyday When you praise Jesus everyday, how can you not have hope in your heart? I refuse to give up, and let satan take over my life. The hopeless are easy prey for satan, he totally depends on them. When you are hopeless, you are like an empty shell. But, when you allow Jesus to fill you with His love, hope comes flooding in, and overflows into your life. My hope is in You Jesus, today, and always.

Hope and faith that He always supplies what is best for us - who could ask for more. Perhaps the patience to wait for His perfect timing.

janet said...

Hey Denise! I love that acronym for HOPE. I'll remember that...good point. It's like what my cousin shared with me about "JOY." To have joy, we just need to remember (in the following order):

J-Jesus
O-Others
Y-Yourself

It's a simple, yet great reminder to me, and I've never forgotten it.

Blessings always, Janet
