Ummmmm! A Four Letter Word

 I'm going through a difficult time right now.  My heart aches.  My feelings want to drown me in despair.  But, in spite of what my heart feels, my eyes see, and what my ears hear, I choose hope.  Hope for the future, hope for the situation, hope for the relationships, hope for a growing trust in and relationship with Christ.  Where else can I turn but to the Lord?

Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, Just as we hope in You. Psalm 33:21-22

Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance.Psalm 42:4-6

But I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more.Psalm 71:13-15

You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word.Psalm 119:113-115

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.Romans 15:12-14

If you're having troubles, I encourage you to see the problem solver, Jesus Christ.
May I suggest?


  1. So sorry to hear your having troubles, feel free to vent anytime and I'll keep you close in prayers!

  2. Hope is a very powerful 4 letter word! You are so right that where can we turn but to the Lord. He is always there just waiting for us to ask for His help. He gives peace beyond our understanding. What an awesome God we serve!!


Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
