Dear Friend in Need of HOPE


...Placing our hope in Jesus awakens our soul to its worth and purpose. However, we often place our hope in other things, which ultimately leave us unsatisfied...wishing always for something more.

Holding onto HOPE

"Committing to HOPE doesn’t mean believing that one day we’ll get what we want. 
True HOPE is believing in unchanging truths…
God is good.
He has a plan.
We are loved



...."A thrill of Hope, the weary world rejoices..."

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23

Dear Friend, He's always watching...



today is a very GOOD day for our family.

full of hope, joyful anticipation, and extreme gratitude after a long season of waiting.

while i'm singing today because i'm so very happy, i KNOW He's been watching me through each and every season - even through my doubts and fears.

He watches you too, friend.

Motivate Me Monday :: Joy Seeker

"J O Y
 is the settled assurance that God is in control of all the details of my life, 
the quiet confidence that ultimately everything is going to be alright, 
and the determined choice to praise God in every situation."

Dear Friend Enduring a time of Turmoil...

Open your heart (wide open 'like a lake') to the one who created it...

Release all your fears to Him.

~source~


 1 peter 5:7 "cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."

Like a Lake

 

Sarah Groves ~ 'Like a Lake' Lyrics



so much hurt and preservation
like a tendril round my soul
so much painful information
no clear way on how to hold it
when everything in me is tightening
curling in around this ache
I will lay my heart wide open
like the surface of a lake
wide open like a lake
standing at this waters edge
looking in at God's own heart
I've no idea where to begin
to swallow up the way things are
everything in me is drawing in
closing in around this pain
I will lay my heart wide open
like the surface of a lake
wide open like a lake
bring the wind and bring the thunder
bring the rain till I am tried
when it's over bring me stillness
let my face reflect the sky
and all the grace and all the wonder
of a peace that I can't fake
wide open like a lake
everything in me is tightening
curling in around this ache
I am fighting to stay open
I am fighting to stay open
open open oh wide open
open like a lake
