Day 23: Forever Hope

I always

SEE HOPE

because

I always want

to

SEE HOPE,

therefore

I am always anticipating

the

CHANGE

that

HOPE

brings.

HOPE~

the GREAT EXPECTATION

for

THE GOOD

to happen.

And then I wonder

if I live on another planet,

in that maybe just maybe

I am looking for HOPE in the wrong places,

when the REALITY of LIFE

hits me right in my

HEART

that

some things may not

CHANGE

on the outside.

But isn't that what

HOPE is.

HOPE puts its TRUST in the UNSEEN

for

"We are saved by trusting. And trusting means looking forward to getting something we don’t yet have—for a man who already has something doesn’t need to HOPE and trust that he will get it.

But if we must keep trusting GOD for something that hasn’t happened yet, it teaches us to wait patiently and confidently" (Romans 8:24-25).

HOPE is all around us

because

GOD is all around us.

HOPE never dies

because

JESUS DIED

to bring us

REAL HOPE,

that is out of this world,

yet it is held

so tightly on the

INSIDE

that it

makes

everything

CHANGE

because

HOPE

changes your

HEART.

And as your

HEART

changes

HOPE becomes so REAL

that it turns

into

REAL JOY

that is everlasting.

So even if

you & I

don't SEE HOPE on the outside

oh it is there,

because

GOD takes you

deeper & deeper

into

HIS HEART~

"And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies

to be released from sin and suffering.

We, too, wait with eager HOPE for the day when GOD

will give us our full rights as HIS adopted children,

including the new bodies HE has promised us.

We were given this HOPE when we were saved.

(If we already have something, we don’t need to HOPE for it.

But if we look forward to something

we don’t yet have, we must wait patiently and confidently.

(Romans 8:23-25).

HOPE IS HERE

for

GOD WORKS ALL THINGS FOR THE GOOD

of those

WHO LOVE HIM (Romans 8:28).

THE GOOD

is the CHANGE that happens

on the INSIDE

as GOD uses

ALL THINGS

ALL PEOPLE

ALL PLACES

for

your

GOOD

because

HE takes the BROKEN things

that BREAK your HEART

to draw you every so closer to

HIS HEART

to a place where it becomes

just you and HIM.

For we do live on another planet

that is not our

REAL HOME

and that is why

HOPE exists.

Because when you

experience

REAL HOPE

it takes you out of this world

and into

HIS WORLD~

"My HOPE is built on nothing less Than JESUS' blood and righteousness I dare not trust the sweetest frame But wholly lean on JESUS' name

HOPE is found in nothing else but JESUS CHRIST"

(from "ON SOLID ROCK")*

So even if I can't SEE CHANGE on the outside

it doesn't mean

HOPE doesn't exist.

What if nothing has changed on the outside,

but everything has changed on the INSIDE,

would that be enough?

Is there a

BROKEN RELATIONSHIP

or a

BROKEN CIRCUMSTANCE

that is causing

the BROKEN FEELING

of HOPELESSNESS

in your heart,

that is causing you to

HOPE LESS?

Let's FAST from HOPELESSNESS

today

by taking our eyes off

what appears to be

UNCHANGING

by putting our eyes

on WHO IS SEEN in ALL THINGS at ALL TIMES

so that

HOPE becomes so alive

that you become every so alive

because

JESUS becomes so alive in you

that all you can

SEE

is HOPE

because

"MY HOPE IS BUILT ON NOTHING LESS

BUT ON JESUS CHRIST"
