HOPE!

Raise Your Praise AGAIN!

Greetings!

BlogFam, 
I have had many opportunities to call congregations to worship and one of my favorite opening remarks is:"This is the day that the Lord has made.  Let us REJOICE and BE GLAD in it!" [Psalm 118:24] I love this verse because it is a declaration that acknowledges our wonderful and awe-inspiring Creator and demands that an attitude of praise and thanksgiving be in our hearts for ALL that the Lord has done.  In other words, in spite of all the twists and turns of life that leave us feeling vulnerable, desperate, worried, and scared, if we redirect our focus on the Creator of heaven and earth, we have reason enough to give God a praise!

Our Treasured Hope in Measured Days

Greetings!

BlogFam, 
Tomorrow is NOT promised and our days on this earth are numbered, limited, and will one day come to an end.  I know that we do not usually like to talk about the measure of our days, a number of days that is mysterious to all, yet it is a number that we too often take for granted.  

It has been about two weeks since I have blogged about our HOPE Series but the scripture for today was on my mind then as it is right now... Psalm 39:4-7

“Show me, Lord, my life’s end

A Formula for LIFE: Hope + Patience + Prayer

Greetings!

BlogFam - 
As we continue our series about HOPE, I came across this verse in Romans 12:12 that gives us the wisest "formula" we should use to face ANY situation in life - 

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

Now I do realize that this might not have always been our first response but after today, I believe that you will reconsider this formula for your current and future battles!  

REJOICE IN HOPE
Do you remember one of the definitions that we discovered for the word HOPE?

God is HOPE... Romans 15:13

Greetings!

BlogFam, 
God is HOPE.  This is a critical statement for the continuity of our series.  I know that you have learned and I pray that you have embraced that God is LOVE.  But have you ever considered that for the things that you are believing God for in your own life by faith, that God must also be your HOPE?  Think about it.  

While you watch and pray, wait and pray, wonder if "IT" will really happen and pray, deep down your belief, your faith becomes the foundation of the HOPE that God will hear, respond, act, move on your behalf and "IT" will come to pass.

HOPE: An Introduction

Greetings!

BlogFam - 
I have HOPE.  I was thinking and praying about this word HOPE a few days ago and I am grateful for the HOPE that I have.  I know that in spite of the things I go through and the people I encounter, I can continue to have peace of mind and joy in my spirit because of the HOPE I have in Jesus Christ.  In fact, I often quote the lyrics of an old hymn that you might know..."My HOPE is built on nothing less, than Jesus blood and righteousness.  I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus' name.
