1 Corinthians 13:13 – “And now abideth Faith, Hope and charity (love), but the greatest of these is love.”
Along with faith and love, hope is an enduring virtue of the Christian life and love springs from hope (Colossians 1:4-5).
I read this:
“Like a sailor, we have an “anchor” for our lives that can help us stand fast through the storms of life. It’s called hope!”
“Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not yet seen.” – Hebrews 11:1
As the days of your life unfolds, you must give substance to your faith by having concrete ideas of what your life is about from God’s perspective and following through on your dreams!
Do you plan to write a book?
Lay out the sketch; block out time for the project; discipline yourself to sit and walk through your plan, one step at a time!
Do you plan to pray and read the Bible more, create a journal. If need be download a guide, allocate the time and get into position. I understand it takes 21 days of constant practice to form a habit. Get going……
Do you hope for peace in your family? Be the change you want to see…….. let your conversation be seasoned with ‘salt’ and minister grace to your hearers!
To the Christian, hope is the knowledge that we are being changed for the better as we trust in God’s promises (Romans 8:28).
The way we trust God is to follow through on plans even against all odds. We tell Him our struggles, thank Him for grace and carry on!
The Bible is full of examples of men and women who hoped in God’s promises.
You are also a good example of a person of hope! Yes you!
Give legs to your hope!
Rejoice in your hope as you prayerfully reach out to new heights or revisit areas of struggle. Learn the lessons and go forward!
Pray that your faith, Hope & love will abide against all odds!
Pray for the grace to start and complete the dreams God has place in your heart! Catch the vision and steer your focus on it!
