  1. (in)courage friends,
    So many times I get disappointed because I place my hope and expectations in other people. People are human and they are bound to disappoint us at some point in time. In persevering through trials with the Lord, however, produces a hope that NEVER disappoints. I can place my hope and expectation in Jesus and I will never be let down. It might not unfold like I imagine, but it never disappoints. This is the beauty of hoping in the Lord.
    Advent blessings,
    Bev xx

  2. I’m looking forward to seeing the hope coming day after day for He says He looks and waits for those who want to know & obey Him! Isaiah 30:18.. I’m going to expect Emmanuel this month again to heal these wounds in my heart, He never fails! Blessings today \0/

  4. In Courage,

    Life down here on broken Earth is hard, noisy & filled with all manner of trials & tribulations. Our lives rarely work out the way we plan them neatly tied with bows. Jesus certainly didn’t get what He planned in the Garden of Eden. He had perfection & we ruined it. But God had a plan all along. His plan was to bring us hope-a hope that never disappoints no matter what. I believe this sums it all up: Psalm 46:1-3 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging God alone is our hope & stay!!

    Blessings & Advent tidings 🙂
