I hope things will get better. I hope that the hardships of life will dissipate. I hope, hope, hope that Lord will rescue me from me. I am sometimes my own worst enemy, but my hope is in the Lord. He is Creator and Sustainer. If I put my hope in anything or anyone else, I’m hopeless. If I put my trust in Him, I have good reason to hope. David penned this beautiful Psalm about hope. Check this out….1 In you, Lord my God, I put my trust. 2 I trust in you; do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me. 3 No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without cause. 4 Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. 5 Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Saviour, and my hope is in you all day long. 20 Guard my life and rescue me; do not let me be put to shame, for I take refuge in you. 21 May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope, Lord, is in you. (Psalm 25:1-5;20,21 NIV)
My hope is found in following the Lord. I believe His Word. I believe that He alone holds the keys to eternal life. I will trust in Him alone to guide my life and give me wisdom and discernment for the choices I face each day.
The band, Third Day penned a song several years ago that I can still sing the words to. The song can be found here. My favorite part is the chorus:My hope is You Show me Your way Guide me in truth In all my days, yeah My hope is You (copyright 1997 Third Day)
Today and every day I want to place all my hope in the Lord!Pressing On! Dwayne
