HOPE is a special word, a word with great significance. HOPE means you’re still breathing. So many speak of Hope when they’re going through hard times or walking through unexpected places in their lives. Hope often seems to be hiding from view during those times for some. Focus on the Lord, trust that He has all in hand and the faith that He is so much more than capable to handle every iota causes our Hope to become a viable reality, whether we can visibly see a see welcome conclusion to our situation or not. HOPE in The LORD.
This is the day that the LORD has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Not only has this verse been so much a great part of my life over the past 31 years, I fully believe that even before commiting my life to the LORD, He began to make the way for my love for this nugget by a simple saying that jumped into my heart when I first heard it. ‘Today is the first day of the rest of your life!’ I fully believe these two things go hand in hand.
Be very blessed and filled with Joy!
The First Book of the Psalms (NLT)
1. Oh, the joys of those who do not
follow the advice of the wicked,
or stand around with sinners,
or join in with mockers.
2. But they delight in the law of the LORD,
meditating on it day and night.
3. They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither,
and they prosper in all they do.
4. But not the wicked!
They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind.
5. They will be condemned at the time of judgment.
Sinners will have no place among the godly.
6. For the LORD watches over the path of the godly,
but the path of the wicked leads to destruction.
Joyful Jots from this book of the Psalms:
In following the LORD:
- There’s inward Joy
- Fruit is born
- Prosperity is experienced
The communion between myself and the Lord as I meditate make for the joyful jots I will be sharing…
