Having Hope

“Faith has to do with things that are not seen and hope with things that are not at hand.” –Thomas Aquinas

“Where there is no hope in the future, there is no power in the present.” –John Maxwell

I still have no job. I am still unsure of what sort of ministry God has called me to. I still have a hyperactive dog. I still need to find a new place to live.

Despite all this, today I feel OK. I have hope. Unfortunately, I cannot say that I am joyous. But I do have hope. Another friend lost their job yesterday. I lost mine a few months ago. In trying to encourage my friend, I was reminded that God is with us. He will not forsake His children, who live according to His purpose.

God wants to bless us. He wants us to ask Him for help. He loves us. He wants and has what is best for us.

Father, help me to trust You and Your perfect timing. Help me not to give in to despair and desperation. Help me to not jump before You tell me to jump. Let Your Will be done. In Jesus’ name, amen.

“You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety. You will lie down, with no one to make you afraid, and many will court your favor.” – Job 11:18-19


A follower of Christ trying to do what's right. This is my journey, so far.

Dedicate yourself to the call of your heart and see where it leads you.

There is always a reason. Be patient and keep faith; remember Abraham and his son, and the immense faith required, yet the utter lack of hesitation from Abraham due to his trust in the Lord to do right.

Amen to your prayer!

Be joyous my friend, God does love you. This is a test, a test of your faith; a journey for your heart. God has called you, so He will make all things work together for your good; and for His glory!

“Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”
1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:7‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Father, I pray for strengthen and comfort for those in need. You have a plan, test the heart; until the mind becomes renewed. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
