Bold Faith Stands on the Shoulders of Quiet Hope
Living in a constant state of Hope and Gratitude causes Faith to be substantial and to bring into being what we hoped for. Here’s a good state of hope to live in:
Lord, You will establish shalom (peace, prosperity) for me, for You have also done all my works for me (Isaiah 26:12).
As long as I’ve been a Christian, I have heard arguments about Faith and Hope, disparaging the value of one or the other of these two words. There are those who want to throw Hope in the garbage bin. Others say faith is impossible, all we can possibly do is hope. I listen to such debates with fear and trembling because they are challenging the Word of God! Friend! Don’t ever challenge the Word of God; instead, spend your time studying and discovering the value of whatever it has to say!
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
