Today I've been given "Hope"
Yes, there is hope for me!
Even though my living room looks like this-
I've taken down Autumn decor but not much
Christmas decorations going up.
All this 'mess' is packing for our move in a couple weeks.
I have managed a couple things to put out to keep reminding me it's Christmas. But then Christmas is a heartfelt time, not just decorations.
This was my breakfast this morning,as I had my daily devotion.
Sweet Potato Pie and Earl Gray Tea.
I love my 'Spode, Christmas Tree' Trio.
I will 'sing' praises for I have been given
I sat down with my Bible and "Our Daily Bread" book this morning for my devotion, with my pie and tea in hand. God has used the writers of this little book to teach me and lead me so many times.
This morning in the quietness of my livingroom, in my favorite chair, I opened my bible and as I did the word, "HOPE" filled my mind as if it was floating around in my head, I only had to reach out and grab it. So I did!
I realized there is hope, in our Lord, we just need to claim it by faith. He's always there, His spirit remains faithful even when we douth. I was reminded to put my 'faith and trust' in Him, his plans are always for my good.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.
God has been faithful in the valleys of my life, as well as when I was on the mountain top.
It's in the valleys where we learn the most, if we are willing to listen with our hearts.
Praise God, He's always been there in the storms of my life, as He promised.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart,and lean not on your own understanding: In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your paths"
There is security in knowing my Lord will lead me each day. I just have to be willing to follow where ever he leads.
Dear Lord, wherever you lead us,
may I always love and serve you
with all my heart.
Have a Blessed Day,
