Keep hoping…

“God is love. When we take up permanent residence in a life of love, we live in God and God lives in us. This way, love has the run of the house, becomes at home and mature in us, so that we’re free of worry on Judgment Day—our standing in the world is identical with Christ’s. There is no room in love for fear. Well-formed love banishes fear. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life—fear of death, fear of judgment—is one not yet fully formed in love. We, though, are going to love—love and be loved. First we were loved, now we love. He loved us first.” -1 John 4:17-19, MSG

I confess, Lord, that I’ve

failed to live in light

of the truth of who

I know

You are.

Please forgive me.

Please help me to


in You.

To stand firm in this


to not fear my circumstances

to love you with all my

heart, soul, mind & strength.


is found

in You

in fearing You

which really translates into loving You

in You

is freedom


and the ability

to love

those that have what I want, those who have hurt me, those who I want to love and those who I can’t bring myself to look at…

in You

is freedom

to love freely, to worship fully, to hope… to keep hoping.

Keep hoping.
