"Hold On To Hope"

Hello friends, followers, visitors and viewers.
Today is Thursday, August 3, 2017.  How happy are you?
Some of you are happy because tomorrow will mark the last workday for the week.
Some of you are happy because you have a mini vacation down in Orlando, Florida (family members).
Some of you are happy because it is getting closer to the first day of school and your children can get back to learning new and exciting information.  Yes, it is that time of the year for college, high school and elementary school children to get away from the beach and back to the books.
Do you have hope?
You may be wondering...hope in what?
Hope is the cord that connects us to God, the very thing that enables God to work in our lives. Hope goes beyond wishing; hope is believing, expecting, anticipating a reality yet to come.
  • Hope heals. Hope enables you to develop spiritual muscles to combat whatever comes your way. “Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength” (Isaiah 41:2). “Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD” (Psalm 31:24).
  • Hope anchors your faith. “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we don’t see” (Hebrews 11:1). Raise your eyes above everyday woes and look to your Divine Helper
  • Hope is a gift from God. “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord. ‘Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’” (Jeremiah 29:11).Claim God’s promise of hope…today.
