My Hope is in You LORD....

There are some things in my life right now that are hard. Things that
are really hard.... Things that may mean some major life changes.... Things that are frightening and make me anxious if I allow myself to dwell on them....

But I choose to...

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and supplication to make my requests known to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus."

Philippians 4:6 adapted for me.


"Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope." Psalm 16:9

"Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the LORD." Psalm 31:24

"Let Your mercy, O LORD, be upon us, Just as we hope in You." Psalm 33:22

"For in You, O LORD, I hope; You will hear, O Lord my God." Psalm 38:15

"And now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in You." Psalm 39:7

"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 42:5

"Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God." Psalm 42:11

Yes, they're the same verse repeated in the same Psalm.

"For You are my hope, O Lord GOD; You are my trust from my youth." Psalm 71:5

"But I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more."
Psalm 71:14

"You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word."
Psalm 119:114

I believe THE LORD reads blogs. So, MY LORD, I choose to hope in YOU. I thank you for the peace that you've given me in this time of life. YOU are so kind and gracious to me. Thank you God!!!!!

Blessed daughter of the KING.


  1. Beautiful words of comfort, Laura... thanks for sharing them today.

    By the way, I tagged you on my blog to tell 6 things about yourself... mwahahaha (evil laugh)
    Only if you want to and whenever you have the time!!

  2. I believe the Lord reads blogs too Laura! And I'm sure he knows exactly how you feel. Change is always scary but it can also be very good. Sending big hugs through the airwaves that things get better for you soon! (((hugs)))

  3. Such an encouragement to my heart this morning. There is so much truth and hope in His Word when we struggle. Thanks for sharing at The Weekend Brew!

  4. Laura, your words "but I choose to" are so very important! We can choose to believe the verses you've listed or choose to go back to our dark cave of fear and worry. Not that I'm an expert at doing that. :)

  5. You're welcome Barbie. I'm glad I found you.

  6. Thank you Laura for sharing your heart and these great encouraging scriptures with us at Good Morning Mondays. Blessings

  7. Don't you LOVE the Psalms! Thanks for sharing so much truth and so many words of hope.

    I came over on the Mama Moments Link up today, and I'm glad to find your site.

    I do pray that God will sustain and encourage you today and provide everything you need for life and godliness.


  8. Those are wonderful scripture verses to encourage us all.

    Thank you and may you continually feel the peace and strength of Jesus flowing through and surrounding you.


  9. Thank you, Lorraine. May you also continually feel the peace and strength of Jesus flowing through and surrounding you.

    How it would change our lives if we could focus on that presence!
