What is Hope? By Jeanne Theriault
Romans 8:24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patently.
Hope gives us a future
Hope is a gift from the Spirit
Hope keeps us going
Hope is never giving up
Hope always prevails
Hope see’s God’s love
Hope brings the reward
Hope is having confidence
Hope waits patiently
Hope gives us an expected end

Hope, we as God’s children should never loose hope, but stay grounded in the word of God. The knowing and having that assurance that God is faithful towards all of his promises. No matter what we go through God is always, always with us. Though we may not understand, it is not up to us to figure out God , but to totally put our hope in him.
Hebrews 6:18 It is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged. 19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
Having hope is like faith. A faith that cannot be moved by circumstances or what the eyes cannot see because unseen God is seen in his faithfulness.
Romans 8:24 For this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
Romans 5:1 Therefore since we have been justified through faith we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.
Lord you are my hope, you are my foundation. Help me Lord to hold fast your word never loose hope and that assurance of your promises that you have given your children. The hope that you give is an anchor for our soul. Because I have this hope my heart is purified and hope is that light that will shine through darkness. Amen
