“HOPE”—God was very specific with me, as I fretted.
“I know,” I thought. “I need to work on that.” Even though I understand that there is always hope with God, I struggle with applying it sometimes.
He whispered to my heart…
H is for hearing.
O is for obeying.
P is for praying.
E is for expecting.
Listening, obeying Him and His leading, ever prayerfully, and expectantly is just what the Great Physician prescribed. “Expecting? Hmmm…” It took a minute for the lights to turn on in my mind - and then it hit me - expecting that He will guide me, expecting that I can rely on Him and trust Him with anything, and everything! And you know what? You can too. Hope, my friend.
“Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts…” 2 Thess. 2:16-17
