Day 13: Do Not Let


HOPE is a beautiful word.

HOPE breathes life into a HOPELESS situation.

HOPE is an answer

in every

SECOND

when you invite the ONE

who is our HOPE into your

every

SECOND

especially when

HOPELESSNESS

strives to overcome your heart.

Then HOPE

will become your

REALITY

when you take the first step

and

"DO NOT LET"~

“DO NOT LET your heart be troubled (afraid, cowardly)"*

Permission to

DO NOT LET~

DO NOT attach.

DO NOT camp out with

the hurt, the fear, the ______.

And instead

"BELIEVE [confidently] IN GOD..."*

Permission to BELIEVE IN GOD

"and TRUST IN HIM"*.

Permission to TRUST IN GOD.

TRUSTING IN~

“have faith, hold on to it, rely on it, keep going"”* (John 14:1)

To

DO NOT LET

demands an exchange,

a great exchange~

a loss of something in order gain so much more.

An action~

DO NOT LET.

Don't even entertain

because there is a SOMEONE better~

"BELIEVE also IN ME"*

Permission to BELIEVE IN JESUS.

Oh the GRACE of GOD

that gently leads you to HIM

if you choose to do so.

What if you really

DO NOT attach to the hurt?

I am not saying disregard what you are feeling

because your feelings are your feelings,

and I know that way too well

as I am a very "feeling" being.

But when I acknowledge

the feeling that is birthed

when I am faced with a HOPELESS situation

and bring it to

GOD,

everything changes.

Because that is where GOD meets me in that moment,

breathing

HIS HOPE

into my heart, because GOD works

ALL THINGS FOR THE GOOD

of those who LOVE HIM,

as HE takes what is

BROKEN

and turns it into

a NEW hing

a something BETTER

that happens in the moment,

so that the "whatever" that is causing

HOPELESSNESS

dissipates,

because when you are

BELIEVING IN

&

TRUSTING IN

GOD & JESUS

with ALL YOUR HEART

nothing else matters in that

SECOND

because

HOPE has arrived.

And

HOPE is what we all need

in every SECOND

and it is available to all.

HOPE

BELIEVES IN GOD

and if HOPE

BELIEVES IN GOD

you can not not BELIEVE IN JESUS

because you can't BELIEVE in ONE without the other.

Therefore,

take a SECOND

and

"DO NOT LET"

by releasing all the BROKEN parts of your heart

to

GOD

because

HE won't let you

be troubled.

What is troubling your soul this very SECOND?

"DO NOT LET"

because

JESUS

is

"ALL MY HOPE"
