This blog is about HOPE.
Many people have come across this word in a weak, sugary, “I hope it doesn’t rain today” sort of way. I’m not writing about that type of hope, I am writing about God’s hope.
The Hope that Jesus brings BURNS. It’s a fire that nothing, nothing can put out. It is POWERFUL.
It’s what drags us out of darkness.
It’s what tears our hearts from depression.
It’s what keeps us living in a world full of ruined dreams and dead possibilities.
“We who have run for our very lives to God have every reason to grab the promised hope with both hands and never let go. It’s an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God where Jesus, running on ahead of us, has taken up his permanent post as high priest for us, in the order of Melchizedek.” Hebrews 18-20 The Message
Do not give up hope! Grab the promises God has for you, He has a future for you, He has a purpose for you, He has people to love you and people for you to love in return. He has blessings to give you, He has lessons to teach you and fears to rescue you from.
No Matter how dark your life is right now His HOPE will burn through your situation untill all you have left in your heart is flame seared love, and knowledge that God, Your God, is greater and more powerful than anything you could ever face.
