The Proverbial Sunrise- Hope



"...And now, Lord, what do I wait for and expect? My hope and expectation are in You..." - Psalm 39: 7

Our hope and expectation should only be in the Lord. He is the only one in this world that is stable and sure. Everything else is on shaky ground. It's sometimes hard to have hope, while everything around us seems to crumble, or is uncertain. The Lord is our pillar. He is our fortress. He cannot be shaken, and can be trusted completely.

If you've lost hope in this world, hope in Jesus. He won't let you down.

When hope is placed in Jesus Christ
We have more meaning to our lives

"My help comes from the Lord.. the Maker of Heaven and earth..." Psalm 121:2

AMEN! and sweet blessings to you Denise...it's with HOPE like this that we will see God's Glory! Hold on to those pillars of faith in the LORD, Denise...that is what it all is about! The LORD is our fortress & our strength, "a very present help in time of trouble", which could be feelings of hopelessness...or any lies that we've believed instead of His truth! You are one shining star! Thanks Denise! BIG HUG!
