In Other Words Tuesday


“Oh, remember this:
There is never a time when we may not hope in God. Whatever our necessities, however great our difficulties, and though to all appearance, help is impossible, yet our business is to hope in God, and it will be found that it is not in vain.”

~ George Muller, quoted in ~
The Roller Coaster of Unemployment:
Trusting God for the Ride
by Sarah M. Hupp: Recently my sister, Vickie, has been very worried about me. I am her baby sister, and since our momma passed away in 2006, she has become like another momma to me, bless her beautiful heart. She also has diabetes, and several problems related to that. We talk nearly everyday on the phone, and she constantly tells me how much she worries about my health. She is scared that I am going to die, and she said she cannot live in this world without me. I love her dearly, more than words could convey, and I am so grateful for the way she loves me. But, my prayer for her is that she would put her hope in our Father God, and find comfort in that precious hope. My hope is totally built upon my Father God, and His love. None of us are promised tomorrow, but we are blessed with the promise of eternity. My hopes and dreams are not based on this world, and earthly possessions. My sights are set much higher, where hope springs eternal. Father God is where my hope will forever be found, as I keep climbing toward higher ground, heaven is my ultimate destination. I love this journey, no matter the length.

Thanks, I needed that this morning. I need to trust God with several things right now and stop trying to fix it myself. Have a blessed Day my friend!

That was beautifully written as always. It's such a praise that we have something better to build our hope upon. Something that is eternal. Wow what a hope.

Jesus often says, "Oh ye of little faith..." By faith we believe!

So thank you for reminding us that no matter what is going on around us, we can rejoice in knowing that He is always there with us, going through tough times with us! God bless you sister.

Hey girl, good post! and full of Hope. You know I so worry about my sis too. But her hope is in Christ and she so comforted by that assurance. So we just try to encourage each other on this journey and stick together; I love her and want to protect her knowing full well that Jesus is her protector. I will be praying for your sis as well for you! Love you Girlfriend:).

Denise, you are precious!!! Your heart for the LORD and your firm footing on your faith in Him is beautiful and warming to see. I'm sure He's surrounding you just as your header reflects!!!

Praying for your dear sister Vickie in exactly the way you stated in your message--that she would put her hope in the Lord as well.

I love you and I'm praying for you often!!!!

Sweet sis Shortybear...Denise,

I'm so blessed to know you and see the beautiful light you are & your faith that shines brightly "no matter what"...

I'm standing with you for your sister Vickie that "she would put her hope in our Father God, and find comfort in that precious hope."

With you being her sis, I don't know how she could not...some of your positive attitude must reach her and touch her with how much Jesus means to you and for her. If you talk every day, she must hear that... be strong & courageous, sis

(hugs)) so this is where you've been... dreaming up a new look for fall... very dreamy & filled with hope. Peggy

I really like the song that played, Denise - I am not skilled to understand...

This was written so beautifully. I am praying for your sweet sister. I can get overwhelmed that way sometime. There is nothing we can do to control circumstances. We can only trust God. Love to you and yours. Anne
