Always have HOPE….

Tonight I saw this and I quickly passed by it….

And I have come back to it a few times as I consider all it invites me to….be joyful

After all it starts with

Be joyful…

It is hard to feel joyful in the midst of grief, but I know that my life has not been robbed of all joy….

Keep on praying…

that feels like one that resonates close to my heart these days. I am spending a lot of time in prayer for my family who I dearly love…..

Always have hope…

I am thankful that I do not feel without hope, even in my sorrow. I have a favorite wall hanging that reminds me that Hope Anchors my soul…..

Do not be anxious….

well that one is tricky for me right now. I have more anxiety than likely ever before, but perhaps that is why I keep on praying…..

Have Courage….

Life takes courage, for so many of us in so many ways. I have another wall hanging that says, “Courage doesn’t always roar, sometimes it is the quiet voices that says I will try again tomorrow.” I know the feeling of trying again and again and again….

“Trust the Lord”….

such a simple phrase….

such a huge invitation….

such a simple and complex decision….

Yes Lord, I want to trust you with my whole being…..

One thought on “Always have HOPE….”

  1. What else can I say than just nod ‘ yes’, it’s the only way to live. I just remembered what my friend Andy Kuyvenhoven says:”The Chrisitan’s life is not an easy one, but it’s the only life worth living.” Love to you! Aunt Marg
