1/22/21 ~ Hope

 


Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings in tune without words,
And never stops at all.  (Emily Dickinson)
 
Have you ever had one of those feelings?  You know the one that I’m talking about, that feeling that you get where you know that something you want is going to happen, your pretty sure of it, but you’re not 100% sure of it but you have that gut feeling?  That is that hope feeling that trust that we have in the Lord that everything will work out the way that God has planned.
 
Jeremiah 17:7 – Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, an whose hope is in the Lord. 

I moved to Nebraska in 2009 from East Texas, I knew no one and really had nothing except my two horses and my little dog Brady.  Fast forward a few years, I now have no little dog (old age) and one happy appy gelding named Louie and two degrees I didn’t have when I moved here.  I also gained a new family in KS and a church family. 

The reason I am going through the short snapshot is because I had no one and nothing when I moved here, the only thing I did have was Faith, Hope and Trust in the Lord to see me through what I was going through.  Sometimes when we see what troubled times are ahead, we need to remember to have faith and trust in the Lord that he will see us through what we are facing.  I know this past year has been difficult on all of us; but I have faith that we will get through them together and come out stronger in the end.

Lord,
Thank you for all you have done for us and continue to do for us.  Please be with our leaders as they guide our country in healing.  Please watch over our church family and keep them safe.  Amen.
