Jeremiah 29:12-13 New International Version (NIV)
Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
SPREAD HOPE ~
There have been times in my life when I felt down. I just couldn't see how God was going to change life to the positive again, but guess what? God answers right on time in life. Sure there times when things take us by surprise and we must deal with it. It is in those times that God is working behind the scenes of life and handing it. Things don't always turn out the way we think, we looking back to see how God did give hope in those days of wonder.
Romans 5:1-5 New International Version (NIV)
Peace and Hope
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope.5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
Hope in the Lord
Isaiah 40:31 New International Version (NIV)
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Hope is a powerful word and action. Those that hope in the Lord, will renew their strength. It doesn't say they might renew their strength, it says they will renew their strength. A positive word of "will". Waiting on somethings is not always the easiest time of life and we must remember that. Putting our hope and trust in the big God is each of our choice. Learning to lean on his will and not always our will. I have seen how some unanswered prayers my way, turned out better God's way. God not only knows what's in our past, but our now and future. Jeremiah 29:11 a plan, a promise and a future.

My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
