6.23.2020 – Refreshed Hope

This morning I feel such a refreshed hope, a revived hope about some things going on in my life.

It’s so funny how in our minds we can become discouraged, and the more we dwell on that discouragement, the more we lose sight of the truth—the truth that Jesus makes a way when there seems to be no way. He’s quite known for that. ☀️When it seems like all hope it lost, He is the way, and He always makes a way, whether we can see it in the moment, or not.

“Hope is a seed God plants in our hearts to remind us there are better things ahead.” – Holley Gerth

With Him, there is ALWAYS a way, there is always hope. There is always a door, even when we can’t see it, even when it doesn’t seem likely to “find a door”…

Revived by the Word (Psalm 119:25-32 TPT)

25 Lord, I’m fading away. I’m discouraged and lying in the dust;
revive me by your word, just like you promised you would.
26 I’ve poured out my life before you,
and you’ve always been there for me.

So now I ask: teach me more of your holy decrees.
27 Open up my understanding to the ways of your wisdom
and I will meditate deeply on your splendor and your wonders.

28 My life’s strength melts away with grief and sadness;
come strengthen me and encourage me with your words.
29 Keep me far away from what is false;
give me grace to stay true to your laws.

30 I’ve chosen to obey your truth
and walk in the splendor-light of all that you teach me.
31 Lord, don’t allow me to make a mess of my life,
for I cling to your commands and follow them as closely as I can.
32 I will run after you with delight in my heart,
for you will make me obedient to your instructions.”

“The Word of God is like a seed. Plant it in your heart.” —Andrew Wommack

“God waters the seeds of hope He plants in your heart.” —Mandy Pagano

Thank You for Your Word, Lord – Your Word is more beautiful than our words can be used to describe it. There is so much depth to Your Word—we cannot comprehend all of the depth of it, but Lord, we can feel it, and we know it. Your Words create and build something beautiful within us. Your Words revive us, and refresh us, they give us hope, and breathe “life” back into our lives. Thank You, Jesus.
