Expectation

imagethough much is taken

for seizures

the brain misfires

 

Over and over again, God miraculously protects from injury.

 

“My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.”  Psalm 62:5 NKJV

“And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made by God to our fathers.”  Acts 26:6 NKJV

Jesus is our Hope and our Promise.

Thank You, Lord, for the hope Your promises contain.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Jesus is the hope
of the promise

that God gave us
long before

coming to bring
forgiveness

and eternal life
restore.

God bless you as you have Hope today!

Prisoners Of Hope

“Return to the stronghold,

You prisoners of hope.”  Zechariah 9:12

 

Hope can be a stronghold.

Thank You,  Lord, for setting us free to hope.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

 

Rescued from

the waterless pit

 

we are now

His prisoners of hope

 

set free to believe

love and trust

 

in the center of

His strong hold.

 

God bless you as you hope in Him today!

Breath of Life

“Now when they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them and kill them.”  Revelation 11:7 NKJV

“Now after the three and a half days, the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them.”  Revelation 11:10 NKJV

I’m reminded of the utter shock and devastation the apostles must have felt seeing Jesus nailed to a cross and placed in a tomb.

Thank You, Lord, for breathing life into what appears to have died.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

When it looks
the darkest
and prayer has seemed
to fail

that’s when God says
“Come close to Me
and watch how I
prevail.”

God bless you as He breathes life into what seems hopeless today!

No Better

“Are you better than No Amon
That
was situated by the River . . .
Whose wall was like the sea?”  Nahum 3:8
NKJV

“Ethiopia and Egypt were her strength
And it was boundless . . .
Yet she was carried away . . .”  Nahum 3:9-10 NKJV

Greatness and strength can be a slippery slope.

Thank You, Jesus, for being my stronghold and my hope.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

I am no better
than any other
rich or poor
sinner or saint

only in that
my life is Yours
do I have hope
come what may.

God bless you as you hope in Him today!

Hope In Mercy

“The LORD takes pleasure in those
who fear Him,
In those who hope in His mercy.”   Psalm 147:11

I can feel woefully inadequate.

Thank You, Lord, for showing me what I can do today . .. hope in Your mercy!  And here’s a simple poem . . .

What To Do

I listen to their stories, their testimonies
see all the miracles You are doing in their lives

it is beautiful and wonderful
and truly You are glorified.

So what can I do, Lord
that will make a difference at this time?

“Fear Me and hope
in the mercy only  I can provide.”

Springs

“Both the singers and the players on
instruments say;
‘All my springs are in you’.”  Psalms 87:7

The water systems in ancient Jerusalem were complex as the kings tried to guarantee a water supply in times of siege.

Thank You, Lord, as everything good for us comes from You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

In You

All my springs
are in You

every drop of my hope
is Yours

as mercy splashes
from You

and abundant life
is poured.

 

Oh My Soul, Hope In God

“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.”  Psalms 42:5

The outlook for America, and the world in general, sounds bleak.

Lord, forgive me for when I make reports bigger than You.  And here is a simple poem . . .

My Help And Praise                                              images

Oh my soul
why are you  cast down
at the reports
you read today?

Hope in God
and remember
He will always be
your help and praise.

Hope

“And now, LORD, what do I wait for?
My hope is in You.”  Psalms 39:
7

And our Hope does not disappoint us.

Lord, thank You for being with us now and being what we wait for.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

My Hope Is You

I will not wait on                                      images
something other

something that
is untrue

for all my hope
is in Jesus

in Who He is
and what He’ll do.

Everlasting Good

“Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace,

comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work.”  2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

He Who loves us gives to us like no other.

Thank You, Lord, for everlasting consolation and good hope, for comforting and establishing us in You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Placement

There is everlasting
consolation

and good hope
by grace

when Jesus Christ
our Lord forever

and our God and Father
in us is placed.
