Hope - Breath of Life

With the arrival of Spring, I thought this would be a great opportunity to begin a new series about Hope. Spring, to me is the season of hope because it brings new life. It is my favorite time of year when everything is fresh and new.

Hope – Breath of Life

Without Hope we die. It's that unseen force deep within us which keeps us moving forward. Because of Hope we choose to continue breathing and dare to imagine the future. Hope is a gift from God.

Hope is the foundation of faith. According to Hebrews 11:1 “Faith is the confidence assurance of things Hoped for is going to happen”

Hope keeps our dreams alive, a vision of our soul and the desires of our heart. “Take delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart” Psalms 37:4

The Lord speaks to our hearts in dreams and visions. He plants those desires in us that cause us to believe in something better. He reveals His plans and purposes for us in this way as well. Psalms 16:7

Hope is a part of that all encompassing love of God. “Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always Hopeful and endures through every circumstance” 1 Corinthians 13:7.

Hope is fundamental to all aspects of our Christian life.

I feel lead to write about the many aspects of hope so, over the next few weeks I will be writing about Hope. It is a wonderful topic and I hope you will join me.
