Hope When Hope Seems Hopeless

Remember your word to your servant, for you have given me hope (Psalm 119:49).

Hope is in Christ. Apart from Him there is no hope.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, (1 Peter 1:3)

We can't create hope with human attempts. However, we who are in Christ are in hope. Because of His mercy we are not without hope. I don't know what that does for you, but it makes breathing a little easier for this girl. Life is brutal. Without fail, we will walk through things that are very much hopeless, apart from Christ. It is/will be hard. Hope is no bandaide. Hope is healing.

Remember your word to your servant, for you have given me hope (Psalm 119:49).

Yes, Lord! Please remember. Please Remind me. Please be true to your promises. You have given me hope!

Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished! (Luke 1:45)

Rest in it.

In His Name,
Jennifer
