Greetings on this beautiful day that the Lord has made! Spring is in the air and we are looking forward to warmer weather, beautiful blooming flowers, leaves on the trees and all the new signs of life that come with Springtime. Yes, we may still have some storms and even snow, but the HOPE of Spring will see us through those intermittent storms!
In our lives, we do the same thing! We hold on to HOPE! If faith is the substance of things hoped for then hope is very important. “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.” Romans 15:4 “And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:5
Hope is not wishing! Hope is believing that God’s Word is true and having eager expectation that it is coming to pass in your life! Hallelujah! Just like we know that those flowers are going to bloom and those trees are going to leaf, we know that God’s Word is true. It is alive and active, working in our lives as we continue in Him. Don’t give up hope! God is faithful! “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
We love you and we thank God for your friendship, love and partnership with us in ministry!
