Today I was cleaning out an old notebook full of papers I no longer needed. I started reading some of the things I had written last year. God knew I needed to see and reflect on some of the thoughts I had written in the past, and the things He had taught me. God is so good, that because of His love He doesn't mind bringing these gentle reminders to me over and over again. God is my hope and I realize that true hope comes only from Him. He is my hope in all things; in every part of my life. So today I am not going to write much, but I am going to be thinking a lot about the reality of the word hope. I woke up discouraged, but as I walk with God today and pray and uplift my burdens to Him, I know He will replace any negative feelings and emotions with faith and confidence that He is working! He will help me to remember His truth! Hope is more than wishful thinking and chance, it is a confidence and an expectancy in who God is. It is believing that God keeps His promises!
Learning to Trust God . . . In Hope . . . One Day at a Time
This is a brand new blog as I am now on a new type of journey! I am learning more and more each day what it truly means to trust God. This journey is taking me deeper and deeper into what it means to surrender my all to Him. I would love to have you come along with me as I share my ups and downs, my joys and sorrows and as I seek a closer relationship and walk with my Saviour.
I need to add that I am beginning the blog again after almost a year and a half. I am still on a journey to learn to trust God and seek to know His will for me. I write mainly for myself, but anyone is welcome to join me on this journey.
