Today I got to do something cool. I was the guest blogger on J. Michael McDade, Storyteller. This is the beginning of the post which has a read time of just 2 minutes. I hope it inspires your heart towards greater things. Your life really can be different.
Out of 189 Bible verses on hope, my favorite is this one: “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” (Hebrews 6:19) The hope of Jesus is an anchor for me in my thoughts and emotions, and when I choose to remember and believe what is true, I can never really lose hope. (This is not a formula. It takes work.)
The Bible says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick.” (Proverbs 13:12) When what we hope for goes unfulfilled or delayed, it brings heart ache and hopelessness can creep in like a cancer. I have been there. I have lived there. In that place where it was all I could do to keep my fingers grasped around hope. Those are the days the sun shines, but all is still dark in your circumstances.
Love & Grace,
