God of Hope

The God of hope! We serve the God of hope! Multiple times in the bible we are instructed to hope in Him.

Psalm 42:11    Why are you cast down, O my soul?
                          And why are you disquieted within me?
                           Hope in God;
                           For I shall yet praise Him,
                           The help of my countenance and my God.

 

Psalm 78:7  That they may set their hope in God,
                         And not forget the works of God,
                         But keep His commandments;

 

Psalm 146:5  Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help,
                         Whose hope is in the Lord his God,

 

Psalm 42:5  Why are you cast down, O my soul?
                        And why are you disquieted within me?
                        Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him
                          For the help of His countenance

In The Beginning….

The earth was void, no form at all, and covered with darkness. Without God the soul is void and dark. The Lord lights out dark places and gives us love and hope. Without His grace the lights he gave us to shine from within will burn out. Through the power of the Word of God and His grace our soul has light, just as He lit the earth, he lights the lamps within each of His children. He created the sun, moon, and stars! Everyday we see his handiwork, his grace and love.

Where I have been…Where I want to be…

I have been lost in grief for most of 2015 and the start of 2016. I haven’t ever known this depth of grief existed, didn’t think I would come out of it, in some ways I am still working through a lot of it. I stayed from the Lord, so steeped in grief that I just fell. I have felt him calling me back, letting me know that he was and is still with me. So here I am….I have been back with Abba for a bit….I feel peace.
